I believe it was simply the choice of the word responsible that cgf
objected to.  Along with the above use of the present tense am, I can see
how casual observers might be (and were) confused.


1 a: liable to be called on to answer
  b: liable to be called to account as the primary cause, motive, or agent
3  : marked by or involving responsibility or accountability

I contributed a good portion of setup's UI.

might have been better choices in hind sight.
