Sorry, this is not true. Your last comment on the topic was: "That is
what enables me to even suggest that we do a remix at this stage."

You suggested something, you didn't tell me about a prototype or about
that you were to release something. Where is that prototype? Did someone
test it? Was there any testing done at all?

When someone on this list asked for the LXDE Spin last week your reply
was: "Haven't decided yet. Might work on it if I find time." This was on
June 10th, on June 15th the spin way already announced. I doubt one can
do the spinning plus a reasonable amount of QA within 4 times.
Have you been running the "basic spin testing" or checked the "Things to
test on LXDE"? Obviously not, although it was all in the wiki and you
knew.

One of the reasons why the spin did not make it in time were problems
with debranding it properly. You insisted that this problem was
important and therefor I had to delay the spin. Strange to see you
changed you mind now: The issues remain, but you released the Spin
anyway.

Sorry, but you didn't do the Xfce kickstart ether. I originally did it,
you modified it a little, inserted "(c) Rahul Sundaram, GPlv2 or later"
in the header and released it without telling Kevin or me. Remember?

But not too fast please. You are not the one to get the bug reports,so
please next time please ask me for the status of LXDE and tell me what
you have in mind so we can coordinate our efforts.
