Thx for explanation.

Well - beside old tickets from 0.22 & older times - no single ticket I 
opened recently turn to be my mistake or miss config from my side. Don't 
get me wrong. Everybody who is working is doing errors. I really 
appreciate devs work and this is normal that some bugs appearing.
It is clearly seen that You lost confidence on my contribution to 
stabilize myth. In such case only solution is to stop cooperate.
I can promise You: since now I will not open any new tickets.

All the best for You !
