Whoa, in this case it is Marcelo, and his responsiveness is on the whole
simply superb. Right complaint, wrong example. Marcelo also does a
great job of having good reasons for rejecting patches on the rare
occasions when he does reject them. Is the real problem that you are
comparing guys who have neither a day job nor a family to someone who
has both? I think maybe it is. Linus, do you have other work
responsibilities besides Linux? With funding provided , could you work
solely on Linux?
I remember when I used to hold a day job while working on ReiserFS and
trying to manage a team of full-time programmers by email. It sucked.
There is crap in ReiserFS that went in only because I didn't have time
to fight it, and Reiser4 is a very much higher level of quality mainly
because I can invest a lot more time into it.
