libel and provocation for far longer than I can count.  a 
person following #rpm and engaging in thoughtful and even 
vapid communication gets courteous and well written replies.

Additionally, if he asked, I would lobby for his addition to 
the core CentOS cadre and innermost councils without 
hesitation -- but from riding to and from OLS with him, from 
sleeping in his guest bedroom and he in mine, from providing 
him free space for a 'wild hare' exploration he wanted to do 
[see: http://www.pmman.com/ ]and from talking on the phone 
often with him, I know he hears a different drum than I
