I think you are being slightly absurd. If you want DragonFly to go into
businesses/corporations you have to be prepared they *have* demands ,
and they are much bigger than mine "is it gonna be branched today as
planned", which i hope you do unless you want DragonFly to be a needle
in a heap of sand forever. If you think that your attitude by calling me
a nagging kid will attract people to this operating system, least of all
businesses, then you are *dead* wrong. How would you feel If I called
you a "a slow and lazy dev". If you want to be abusive you should join
the Gaim club or OpenBSD, because they have plenty.
Lay it off and the branch will be made when they feel it's time for it.
The devs do a lot of work and the only thing they get throw in their
faces are "when are the branch gonna be made?". I'm not a dev but
these are people that dedicate their free time to develop a nice
operating system and I have a hard time seeing how anybody could make
demands against them.
