Fair enough, i'll rephrase that statement more constructively.

I dislike the way John attempts to dictate activities within the project 
without contributing to it in any substantive way beyond RPM patches.

Open source development is a truer meritocracy than most which claim to be.

You're the project leader because you've contributed thousands of hours 
and probably (by now) at least half a million lines of code.

I claim to be on the FreeRADIUS development team and act authoritatively 
on some project related matters, as i've now contributed large amounts of 
code, and handle a lot of day to day maintenance.

Phil, Matthew, Alan B, Fajar, Olivier, or any of the other active 
contributors have earned the right to have their opinions heard and 
considered through years of actively contributing code, documentation,
test cases, or by helping people on the mailing lists.

Maybe historically John has contributed significant amounts, and i'm 
out of line. But I can't think of many examples in the last seven years,
so when he acts as an authority or someone who's opinion should hold 
weight, or be respected, I take exception.
