Sorry! Sigh! Very utmost bad decision, but I must respect it.
The accumulative principle is the opposite of effectiveness.
Even if you do not understand the dvb issues in git2 (well I cannot expect this, can I?), you push

a. immature code
b. a regression

Isn't it a pity that the "maintainer" title has more influence than any kind of
common sense, reason or sophisticated argumentation?
What a horrible thought!

P. S.: In former kernel releases the specific last release candidate was almost identical to the official kernel release.

Not only I have largest problems to understand why this wonderful principle has been broken, with the effect, that the so-called "stable" kernel releases are unusable in the end.
2.6.20, 2.6.21, 2.6.19, and may be former ones that I do not know about.

A "Final" release should be "round", but never in this life highly incomplete, shouldn't it??

Poor Linus!
I have got thousands of good reasons to be so rude towards some people. And I certainly know the smart polite way of the game too. I know both ways of dealing with. But if someone continues to nerve me for such a long time (whoever the specified person may be) I get out the big stick and then there will be bambule pure!

Excuse me, you are only finnish origin: "Bambule" is an invention of Ulrike Meinhof and other 68ers and stands for "revolt" or something similar.

Wasn't it you yourself stating that if one wants changes it is not always useful to be polite??

"If you want to change something, it's not fine to be entirely polite all the time:"

Happy reflection, Mister Torvalds!
