No way am I going to believe that that is a balanced characterization of what went down.
In the #parrotsketch discussion of September 06, 2011, I brought up the idea of making a list of potential Parrot improvements and another list of Rakudo's top priorities (from Parrot). Patrick said that there'd been lists like that made in the past and then said that I had "offered to work on them and we had deferred him from it."
"We" in that context means "Rakudo developers". "Them" means "Parrot improvements corresponding to Rakudo's top priorities".
That's why I keep saying "I offered to make Parrot improvements for Rakudo, but Rakudo told me not to" and "You can find documentation for this if you bother to look for it." Because that's what happened, no matter how much #perl6 wants to pretend otherwise.
