The new code will get tested in -current and if time permits it will kick the horrendous blob out of -5, but I'm certainly not giving any chance to the blob of surviving free code in a release branch. For some reason you seem to be unwilling to say anything about what you're doing with that code; I'm not so sure I understand that position, because it would certianly speed up the process if people could start eyeballing the planned import and test on a wide range of hardware. -- Quentin Garnier - cube%cubidou.net@localhost - cube%NetBSD.org@localhost "See the look on my face from staying too long in one place [...] every time the morning breaks I know I'm closer to falling" KT Tunstall, Saving My Face, Drastic Fantastic, 2007.
