Oh, I actually understand that.
Perhaps you noticed that that particular sentence is unfinished - I
intended to write more on exactly what your dispute made me argue, but
realized myself that it would be nitpicking and decided to drop that.
But forgot to delete my half-finished sentence before sending the

Thanks for your view on this, Maximilian.

Good to hear that they are valued. I was worried that the latest
commits was maybe too enthusiastic: I have this fanatic goal that shell
scripts must properly handle file- and dirnames with spaces in them.
Hmm. And now I remember where that enthusiasm came from: A couple of
years ago I tried for the first time to build unofficial Debian kernel
packages the "ultracorrect" way (not only make-kpkg, but appliying
my patches and using debuild on the official source package) and after
boiling for many many hours (I don't have fancy hardware) it failed.
Not because of errors in my patches, but because of too long
commandline because somewhere was used "find | xargs" or such instead of
I never fined a bugreport because I thought it was just me having a
silly environment ( /tmp was too small so I set
TMP=/home/jonas/[a looong path] ). But heey - now I have write access
and if still there I can fix it myself ;-)
