Thanks Joachim, I didn't read this piece yet.

It is *unbelievable* what Luke's writing here and *completely untrue*. I
have *never* mailed something like this, and I would never do so. Our
last communication was on July 9 and ended friendly. Between July 3 and
July 9 we corresponded with 5 mails about the benchmark, in a friendly
way; there were several people in the CC, and I helped Luke to find a
deviation, and Luke suggested improvements for our algorithm. /I've
never written anything about publishing benchmarks at all./

I can really not believe what I'm seeing here above.

I don't understand where this sudden statement comes from. Luke, if
there are any resentments from the past, I regret that. Please let that
go, let's work together in the future.
