Thats why you cut everything but the relevant text to get a clue what the thread is about. If a posting is only meant for those who are actively involved and if there is no need to archive the thread, then it might be considered if it is better to post outside a public mailing-list.

Either way, but being consequent is to be preferred. Either we all top-post or we all inline-post. -- Natanael Copa -- gentoo-embedded@g.o mailing list
