Maxime, it is very good that you are enthusiastic, but your "it needs
to be perfect" attitude and the way you shoot around and hurt people
does IMHO actively discurage people from improving NetBSD.

Please use technical criticisms if you have any, but avoid this broad
"everything is shit" mails. Everyone will read an implied "unless I did it"
and dismiss your (probably valid) point (that you did not even make).

Sorry to be blunt,
