Hi John,

It appears there's been a big misunderstanding.

I don't accept that there is a conflict of interest. Why do you think there is? As you would be aware there are many examples of open source projects that have successfully adopted a commercial model.

I'm offering to assist in accelerating development on the project in a way that complements the project goals, and not just coding: e.g. helping to create and maintain user documentation.

I'm happy to discuss further with you and/or others in the development team. Perhaps IRC or another medium would be best rather than the mailing list.

If the consensus is not to accept my help, then I respect that, but it would be unfortunate if this opportunity passed merely due to a misunderstanding.

No, I don't think so. Your commercial efforts with patchpitch present an 
enormous conflict of interest. Please go away.
