Sorry, Tim.  That doesn't read back well, and is more open to 
misinterpretation even than the generality of emails.

I was, at the time that I knew about that decision, still feeling slightly 
prickly about the Ubuntu release-on-schedule-whatever-the-cost mentality.  I 
apologise for my choice of words.  I immensely admire, and am profoundly 
grateful for, all the hard work and dedication that you and the other 
developers put in.  Moreover, your explanation makes sense, so I was even 
wrong. :-(

"prepared to offer" is also an ungracious way of saying it.  I was just trying 
to express what is more usually and colloquially phrased as "put up, or shut 
up".  If I am unwilling or unable to do things for myself, I must just be 
grateful for what other people are being generous enough to offer me.

So again, many thanks to you and all the others who work so hard to give us 
Trinity.
