Well, i'm going to attend a Linux kernel conference in two days, so no,
i dont ignore conferences. (Wont attend the KS this year though - cannot
attend too many conferences unfortunately - they are certainly fun :)

But that's beside the point even - i absolutely reject your apparent
notion that i have to meet you 'face to face' to be treated in a
friendly and honest way, such as in a routine matter of creating a
mailing list on vger. "You have to visit the same pubs as us to be on
the same frequency" is clan/tribe/clique thinking that i find
fundamentally harmful.

( That also happens to be one of the main disagreements (and sources of
conflicts) between you and me - the "us vs them" mentality on netdev
that i have a problem with. You know that. )

Anyway, i'm glad it got all resolved, and yes, after months of trying to
achieve this new mailing list amicably i saw no other way but to raise
attention to this matter in more forceful terms.

Btw., regardless of your flames against me in the past, i dont think you
dislike perf events all that much anymore. The recent Niagara code you
wrote in arch/sparc/kernel/perf_event.c certainly shows great care and
interest, and i think/hope that you enjoyed dealing with that subsystem.
You did contribute a number of fixes and i think you'd have told us
frankly if you still disliked aspects of its design. So as far as my
"you did this to hurt perf" accusation goes, that was unfair and over
the top, and i apologize for it.

Ingo
