I have attempted to contact the ofono IRC in January, Febuary, March,
April. I have sent my patches In April:



And February:

I have attempted to contact Ofono via IRC At every single attempt to
send patches, in addition to submitting my patches to linux-netdev:


and asking about how to contact the ofono maintainers in kernelnewbies
in IRC. 

I have attempted to individually email the mmsd Authors as well as
anyone within the past 5 years who contributed to mmsd. I simply do not
know of any other way to contact the mmsd maintainers.

I would really like to avoid a fork as well, but I am simply unwilling
to try and contact ofono and be ignored for months.

If you have some way to get the ofono maintainer to talk to me, I would
like to know, but chances are, I have tried it.
