I think the developers need to address the problems that get brought up, too.
I took the time to post a complete bug report (good and failing dmesg) about a
bug that made an(4) crash the kernel and not boot 3.7 to misc@ and bugs@,
then later sent it to the maintainer (mickey) , and got nothing each time, not
even a "yeah, okay we got it" or "take a look in this part of the code
or try this"
It was very frustrating to try and make things better and get ignored.
The parts of a computer system that can be kicked.
