[U-Boot-Users] doc for config options?

Well, the message I sent was indeed highly confidential and not to be read by anyone.


I didn't even know that this diclaimer was attached to my mail. When reading that mail in my out-folder, I don't see it. It's therefore attached somwhere between my machine and the mail gateway (or there). It's not been attached to a message to myself.

Good to have this discussed.

Yeah, but it _is_ pretty strange to post confidential information on a public mailing list, isn't it? What happens if you really _did_ post something you didn't mean to -- will the disclaimer actually mean a damn thing as long as it's being attached to _all_ emails no matter whether they're confidential or not?

Anyway, I didn't really mean to critizise anyone here. Although I think such disclaimers are just plain stupid, complaining about it on u-boot-users certainly isn't going to change anything. And the next thing that happens is probably that my own IT department does the same thing...

Btw, I use a gmail account mostly for convenience -- I was having some problems with my VPN setup some time ago, so I subscribed to u-boot-users and linux-kernel with my gmail account to ensure that I could reply to u-boot and Linux mail from home. I try to send important stuff like patches and pull requests from my Atmel address, but that might change if they decide to put stupid disclaimers on all my e-mails...I can't seriously submit patches that are "confidential"
for inclusion in a GPL'd project, can I?
