I wasn't going to say anything, but since someone else feels like I do ....

I have also written some bits that I thought were generally useful, and have
submitted them (in particular, I submitted a patch via send-pr for disklabel
that would hopefully go a long way towards people not trashing their DOS
partitions anymore).  I understand that was around release time, so it
obviously wouldn't make it into 1.0, but I didn't hear anything about it then
or now.

I don't mind feedback that says my patch sucks (well, ok, I _do_ mind that a
bit :-) ), or an explanation of why it won't be included, or a suggested change
that should be made.  But I don't know how to take complete silence.  Am I
doing something wrong?
