Oh, come on. We are making commits to fix these issues and there
are and have been corresponding nominations in STATUS to get these
fixes backported ASAP.

I think you tend to misunderstand people's writing tone sometimes.
That's understandable, but please try to stop being so defensive.
You shouldn't assume people in this community are working against you.

Your client is quite likely the most-used SVN client (at elego I've held
more workshop classes based on TSVN than any other workshop in our portfolio
combined) and it is of very high quality and we're very much interested
in it succeeding, just like you are.

And don't forget that you also have commit access to Subversion itself
which means your voice counts as much as any other committer's voice and
you can also help out making happen changes which TSVN needs.
For instance, there is this nomination in STATUS right now which could use
your vote:

 * r1222521, r1222693
   Turn another wc-db assertion people are reporting into a normal error.
   Justification:
     An informative error message helps people more than an assert (which
     in case of TSVN can mean crashing the Windows Explorer).
     Reported several times on users@, see:
     http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2011-11/0527.shtml
     http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2011-12/0063.shtml
     http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2011-12/0299.shtml
   Votes:
     +1: stsp

You may feel that you're having a hard time convincing people but I
don't think that is what is actually happening. We're all acting as
equals here.

So, piece, and Merry Christmas!
