Ähm, I was *specifically* commenting on the kswapd bug. I wonder
what words you lie into my mouth.

Even Andreas (whose message I read too late) said it was a known
kernel bug (can it be fixed, pretty please?).

>for example, tells me that I am right and you are wrong:

I did not wish to make this a matter of right or wrong, but I
cannot help but throw an argument into this particular pot:

Would you choose speed over consistency?

I think that’s one of the major cultural differences between
Linux and BSD people (and, incidentally, MySQL users and
database users).

So even the right vs. wrong is subjective here.

But, by all means: you’re doing the work, and I have been
trying to reduce my involvement in Debian/m68k (as I’ve
brought it to a state which solved my initial problems,
and I’ve got other things to do, and I never meant to
stay infinitely), so, from the doöcracy PoV, you’re right
(merely by doing things, mind you).

“The final straw, to be honest, was probably my amazement at the volume of
petty, peevish whingeing certain of your peers are prone to dish out on
d-devel, telling each other how to talk more like a pretty princess, as though
they were performing some kind of public service.” (someone to me, privately)
