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;
