Dearest Mauro,

I am not trying to annoy you or anyone else with my response here, but:

Please do not exaggerate..
(I can write more precise technical details in here, but that will not solve the
real issue at hand.)

You have only your own viewpoint, refuse to listen to anyone else. Wonder
why all the DVB developers left development ? It's all about you, yourself
and you. Linus doesn't care about anything else, you have been very lucky!

You need serious introspection about yourself. Take a deep breath, think for
yourself, why I stopped submitting code. Forget myself, think about the list
of developers who were around, but not now.

People need to have fun with what they are doing, but you make it, everything
about yourself. It's all about maintaining connections, rather than destroying
them. At least during these uncertain times, please stop the narrow thinking.

If you find my view offending, just ignore it, no need to give another thousand
mile long essay; I am on my way ..

Friendly Regards,
