Correct. The post which is going on all news sites now is IMHO one of the
most =0D
insulting posts that I ever read. Everyone who knows Keithp in person kno=
ws =0D
that we're discussing a thing here that is bugging literally everyone: =0D
developers from desktop projects like KDE and GNOME, distributors and UNI=
X =0D
derivates such as the BSD's and in the end, users and support companies w=
ho =0D
have to live with the stuff they get from XFree86.=0D
=0D
What do you mean "get from XFree86"?  Don't you mean what people 'give to
XFree86".=0D
If they want something in why don't they send the patch in?=0D
=0D
 If instead you mean for XFree86 developers to develop another's  idea th=
at
was posted or discussed on one of the XFree86 mailing lists, well then yo=
u
get it to the thorny issue of 'interest'.  If you can't do it then you ha=
ve
to 'interest' someone who can, right?  Good case for learning how =0D
to do itself if you ask me.=0D

Nothing is really work unless you would rather be doing something else.=0D
