Many thanks for assuming leadership of the project.  cGit is great and 
it's the Git front-end of choice here at Eclipse.

Healthy discussion is a sign of a healthy community.  Folks asked 
questions and they were shot down really quick.  Had the email below 
been presented several hours earlier, there would have been no need for 
follow-up questions since your position is quite clear.

Again, many thanks to you personally for your hard work on cGit, and to 
everyone who contributes.  I hope the project continues to prosper as an 
active community of involved users and developers who are all open to 
discussion and to new ideas.
