kernel module packaging

I spend more than a month coming up with a decent solution that people seem to like to packaging kernel modules, which also seems to work for 2.4 kernels, together with some other bright people. One month. And I mail lists, try to get people to look at it, get some feedback, just basically trying to get stuff moving through the fedora.us QA system.

I am away for a week doing something as trivially uninteresting as doing the world’s first Theora stream of a conference, and then everyone starts discussing everything at the same time on the mailing list, generating one of the longest threads ever. Then somebody tells me I probably wasn’t following the discussion. Well I sure did try to bring it up more than a few times.

Sometimes this sort of thing just makes me really really tired. Would it have killed some of the people taking part in the discussion to at least take a look at the solution I’m proposing ? Instead, none of the people involved in the discussion seem very willing to budge from their position. It’s been over a year, and Fedora Extras still is nowhere near where it should be, despite the incredible amount of uphill climbing done by people like Michael Schwendt who put me back in my place when I deserved it.

Is it that hard to pull together and fix some real issues for once ? If it doesn’t get solved quickly I’m going to start a completely inane release tag naming proposal thread on fedora-devel and switch over to SSDS.

I’m up for sale to someone that can make good on the promises they make.

Fortunately I spent a chunk of my Sunday on the beach. The beach puts things into perspective.
