You use the word "people", the plural form, as if there is someone doing sparc64 kernel maintainence other than me. That would certainly be news to me. This means you have to understand there is _ONE_ person doing all of sparc64 kernel maintainence, and therefore one person who has to look at and fix all the bugs, do all the new features, do ports and cleanups when generic kernel changes occur, etc. Therefore it should be no surprise that some things slip through the cracks and are beyond my capacity at times. -- gentoo-sparc@g.o mailing list
