That doesn't mean that Rick is offline or unavailable.

That said, it was extremely uncool of Dimitry to usurp this project 
simply because a piece of mail didn't go through. A lot of us, 
especially myself, know how to get a hold of Rick. Dimitry didn't 
take normal due diligence steps, imho, to see that he could HELP Rick 
get it done rather than just hijacking the project.

Let's not forget that open source relies on cooperation and trust -- 
and that taking over a project is seen as a very harsh step -- 
insulting even -- and should only be done if due diligence to try and 
cooperate hasn't worked.
