So you define the resonance frequency. Which I find not very
cooperative. Don't we have the same rights, like to reject (or debate)
_your_ enhancements?

Let me ask you a question: why do you maintain your own kernel tree?
Probably because its easier than getting your patches accepted. I want
to avoid that situation happening again in our micro-cosmos. (And
that's what it really is, be fair.)

Wolfgang, please don't always turn away from inconvenience like that.
I know it's tedious, and I know that some people out there shake their
heads, but we're dealing with Open Source here, so the rights of
maintainance should be discussed openly as well. Actually I'd be
interested in other peoples opinion on this. Do we need aprobation
time to be allowed to continue working on U-Boot[ARM] again?
