Re: response to linus...?

it's not because of "one day", but because of the absolute lack of
interest in key issues i see here.

> As far as I know we are only stopping from puting GNOME in your signature.

i already said it was not important: i wasn't trying to put gnome in
my signature, but put gnome marketing team and NOT my signature.  it
doesn't matter who wrote it, what it needs is backing.

> Ask yourself why is so important for you to keep it there.

backing is important because if a letter doesn't have any, it won't
get read, no matter the contents.

because my main concern wasn't talking to linus, but "talking" to the
audience who already heard linus.

i don't give a damn about what linus thinks of gnome, but i do give a
damn about him trashing our image in public.

so i'm sure they have published something already, and i missed it,
right?  btw how much have they published in the last year, as the
"official voice"?

you're speaking as if i had written an insulting letter to the guy.

and how do you plan to do that, exactly?

again, i wasn't trying to convince linus; how many times did i already
say my focus was on our brand image?

again, that wasn't an issue.
