Re: Bring back the old Linus
We do *not* enable new random drivers by default. And we most *definitely* don't do it ...
Just don't do it.
Yes, yes, every developer always thinks that _their_ driver is so special ...
... just because some developer thinks it is special. It's not.
Please don't do things like this.
Just HOW MANY TIMES has Torvalds had to say this?
Is it really necessary for him to have to SAY IT AGAIN AND AGAIN AND YET AGAIN?
Is it really SO HARD TO GRASP THE IDEA behind what he is saying?
Just how many times do you have to tell assholes NOT TO BEHAVE like assholes in order for it to sink in?
I think the proper thing to do would be this:
fifth third time a developer/contributor does something he has been already told not to do, he gets the boot.
He can go work with the rest of them, Poettering would be a distinct possibility.
Having been told NOT to do it (and be sure it's clearly written down somewhere) there's absolutely NO excuse for any developer/contributor worth his salt to repeat this behaviour.
So, if a developer/contributor cannot fucking read and in addition to that, cannot fucking heed the team leader's clear and conscise rules of coding, there's NO place for him/her coding for the Linux kernel.
Damn, it's even got me upset and I'm only an end user.
