No. Just when I thought things couldn't get crazier, my laptop died.

What spare time I had has been dedicated to recovering from that in time
to give my talk next week.

No behind-the-curtains discussions happening, or, let's say, if there
are, I've not been invited either.

I'd like to get back to the cross-reference stuff. Last I tried, it
failed while building the media docs; have you been able to look at

Longer term, as you may know from the kernel summit discussions, I'd
really like to get rid of a lot of the XML gunk and put in something more
straightforward, be it based on Markdown or something else. Doing that,
however, requires that I find the time to implement something that's
convincingly better. It may happen soon, but I sure can't guarantee it.

Meanwhile, I think it would be a horrible mistake to delay useful work
because I have a gleam in my eye to do something different one of these
years, so I'll not do that. I fully expect to merge all of the stuff
you've done, I just need to have a good look at it and test it out a
bit. As I said before, I can't promise that for the 4.3 merge window,
but I'll try.
