Oh, we have official team drinks now? Great, sign me up, can I pick a
t-shirt logo as well? :)

I'm sorry I forgot to copy you, and the other people that provided
feedback on the original few versions, that's my fault. I kind of
assumed that people found the first version on their own, the updates
would be in the same place as well. I had not kept track of the
reviewers and commentors properly.

My fault, and I'm sorry.

But for you to think I was purposefully slighting you, or anyone else,
and that slight would justify completly ignoring the original authors
and submittors of the code, seems, well, a big streach.

I'm really sorry, but I know of no existing bugs in this code.
Seriously, I thought we addressed everything that was pointed out. A
large number of people have tested this in quite different environments,
and we got sign-off-bys by all of the boot logic infrastructure
maintainers from the major distros, as proof of that testing.

I don't know of any standards that we are not following here, what
specifically are you referring to?

thanks,

greg k-h
