Hi Sean

It is a relief to hear from you. I’m sorry if you were weirded out by the help 
offered. I have struggled in the past to swallow my pride and just accept help 
when I need it. Last year dealing with Rebecca’s cancer was a humbling 
experience for me in this regard. 

Anyway, there’s a few points I thought it might be helpful to clarify for 
yourself and others below.

Although this may appear to be blame shifting I’d like to point out that when 
Dropbox dropped API v1 they sent a number of emails allowing us to get prepared 
to offer something for v2. Google’s little note at the bottom of a page you 
don’t really look for little notes on really didn’t help that much clearly.

All we need is a decent bug report for anything that isn’t open source.

If the issue is in a script only stack which most things are in the IDE then we 
do accept contributions.

This is the main point I wanted to clarify. When I heard of your situation I 
stopped doing the work I had been assigned and started working on a fix for 
you. Doing it as quick as I could meant breaking the mac cross compilation so I 
built for iOS, ensured it worked and posted a link for you (or anyone else to 
access it). So that leaves on the todo list before it becomes part of the main 
distribution for me to fix the mac build, have it reviewed by another member of 
the team and included in the main bundle of mergExt builds we include in the 
distribution. In the meantime we have a build that works for those that need it.
