    I think I can handle the chaos and bumbling that is Linus. In fact I
    sent this one to Andrew to give it a bit of exposure in the -mm tree

    Russell has now said that he committed it by accident, and from that I
    infer that he's not going to make a habit of it. So that ought to
    suffice for now.

    The government department responsible for administering the DPA has a
    'Data Protection Help-Line' which I have asked to clarify the situation;
    it shouldn't be necessary to pay lawyers to do it. But then again, I can
