The other questions are fair. This one is not. Thomas Dickey's
disgusting behavior drove me off the project six months ago. The
proper question would be what significant contributions I made
in the six months or so before the hijacking when I was still actively

If you like, I will mail you my last six months of patches to the
ncurses source tree. I still have them all.

I should have gone to war the day Mr. Dickey hijacked the project. I
allowed myself to be dissuaded by the advice of others. As a result,
I was effectively paralyzed until he compounded the offence last week
