    SubjectRe: ARM promising platform, needs to learn from PC.
    At some point, in a random thread, a highly respected but very
    depressed ARM linux kernel developer wrote:

    dear russell,

    the purpose of the proposed "selfish is out, collaboration is in"
    patch rule is ultimately to allow you to feel that what you're doing
    is actually encouraging people to cooperate and help each other - the
    complete opposite of the present situation.

    right now, you're being massively taken advantage of. not by your
    peers, but by pathological cancerous Corporations who expect you to
    clean up their mess and do unpaid work for them, so that they can make
    absolute maximum profits.

    i'd say you were absolutely within perfectly reasonable rights to tell
    everyone to f*** off until there is a solution, and the only puzzling
    question i have to ask is why in god's name have you tolerated things
    for so long?? :)

    can i therefore respectfully ask for your thoughts on the proposed
    rule (and in particular, on the examples which help clarify matters)?
    is it pure bullshit, or what?

    warm regards,


     \ /
