    I heard Linus say that he wanted Configure.help split up. I agreed to
    do it, too, in CML2. But I thought I was not supposed to mess with existing
    formats -- in fact, I was afraid to, because you and Al Viro beat me up
    so hard about changing *nothing* before cutover. The CML1 code owns that
    format, and I am not the CML1 maintainer. In fact mec specifically turned
    me down when I volunteered for that job; he said he wanted me concentrating
    on CML2.

    Neither Linus nor anyone else ever said to me "Eric, it's your job to
    make that change." When I asked for guidance, Linus blackholed my mail.
    Was I supposed to be practicing telepathy, here?
