I maintain kernel-package. I have no idea what it takes to
maintain kernel image packages for i386, much less for other
archs. But I also have people who do, and who help me put together a
working kernel-package package.
Linus himself admits he just works with 5% of kernel code; he
has delegated trust and responsibility.
We have this thing called a community. And we cooperate. We
help each other in areas we have strengths in, and together, we
produce results that are more than the efforts of the individuals
alone could have done.
These are my packages. I am responsible. Mine! Mine! all
Mine! is a bad way to think of your relationship to your packages.
can't we all just pretend we are in this together?
A CODE OF ETHICAL BEHAVIOR FOR PATIENTS: DO NOT COMPLAIN IF THE
TREATMENT FAILS TO BRING RELIEF. You must believe that your doctor
has achieved a deep insight into the true nature of your illness,
which transcends any mere permanent disability you may have
experienced. NEVER ASK YOUR DOCTOR TO EXPLAIN WHAT HE IS DOING OR
WHY HE IS DOING IT. It is presumptuous to assume that such profound
matters could be explained in terms that you would understand.
SUBMIT TO NOVEL EXPERIMANTAL TREATMENT READILY. Though the surgery
may not benefit you directly, the resulting research paper will
surely be of widespread interest.
