You could say the same for unnecessary scolding. This list is all but
silent, and current status is very opaque unless you specifically know where
to look, and even then there is no real indication of actual work flow
status, only vague inclinations thereof. I have to agree with Dag on this
one, especially having watched the past few months regarding people trying
to help.

Furthermore, look who you scolded, hardly an example of a backseat 8 year
old asking incessant questions. What have you done to help the linux
community as a whole in comparison?
