SubjectRe: Disgusted with kbuild developers
again, if you all would spend 1/10th of your time helping as opposed to just
slaming it, I'd be impressed. CML2 makes a WORLD of difference for me
personally. But hey, what do I know? I'm just a network administrator, I'm
not a kernel wizard, so feel free to just totally disregard my opinions...
