Well, back in the 2.6.17 tree again. I had to break up my patch standards again. 'silver' became 'silver' and 'bronze'. I failed to take into account that with clean being 'the patch as it was handed to me' and silver being 'the patch in good condition', i needed an in-between state 'the patch as good as i can get it right now, without breaking other things'.
Due to the recent kernel user->root escalation bug, we're going to forward port to 2.6.32, as soon as its released. This should be fun, with as little manpower as our project has.
In my personal life.. I got to protest the protesters at a tea party. I tried to be respectful, but I was showing up at someone else's protest, with signs opposing them. I received many shouts of 'get a job!'. which is doubly ironic, since i have way too much work already. I was only in time to protest, because I had to step out of work early to grab food. Hypoglycemia sucks.
The reception by the crowd was interesting, as when i approached, they backed away. composition wise, it seemed to be one third people-expressing-opinions-on-health-care, one third obama-hate, and one third whargarbl.
