  Hi Jonas,

I am sorry if I have misinterpreted the meaning of the message.
I am just terribly frustrated with the overall state of the FPC :-( .
I even offered to donate our enhanced RTTI API to the FPC community with 
very little interest so far :-( .
I really want FPC/Lazarus to become a real competitor to the rest of the 
development environments.

With best regards,
Boian Mitov

Why do you take one paragraph out of context and base a whole rant on
that which ignores the other information from the original message?
