    With current state of affairs it's not only hard for developers, but
    and for users: <>,

    I'm trying to re-do some kbuild stuff, but i'm getting rather offensive
    answers :( <1182020654.8176.398.camel@chaos>

    (Even if i'm academic with free Internet, i doubt i even tried to
    think to improve something, if i didn't have one, because i wouldn't knew
    huge lkml traffic, problems, etc.)

    Maybe i'm wrong. But reducing amount of traffic/files and ease of
    (re-)configuration are not last things to be done for better testing.
    All for speed of getting and compiling kernel. Latter for avoiding
    bugs and noise due to inconsistent build configuration.

    Finally again, bug-reporting and tracking tools, i've tried to discuss
    are major problems out there I think it's plain easy and deal with. One
    more example:

    Xref: gmane.linux.debian.devel.kernel:28095
