Dude, plz relax.
It was only when I saw your first reply to this topic I recalled that you
said in another topic "I have started working on a program that processes
MSBuild files" after some searching in Outlook.
I was discussing the possible idea to implement MSBuild off the list with
Nathan, but as he is on the road untill friday, we agreed to plan the thing
in the weekend. My idea was to send our plans to the list after we had some
idea of how to tacle this, and ask for community input and whoever wanted to
help. I only responded earlier because roy posted a topic on this.

My apolagies if you feel offended, it wasn't my intention at all.
Once again, if you want to collabarate and think this is achievable to
combine our common goals, please say so. As you have already begun, you
would be a valuable resource to us.

Actually, I do not recall having given much detail on my ideas for 
implementation. However, you seem aware of my interest and efforts, but 
decided not even to attempt collaboration. I'm used to that kind of
from the Mono community, but it still hurts.
