    Exclamation Release The Driver, Or Step Aside

    I am going to keep asking this question, regular as clockwork, on the last day of each and every month, until the long-overdue and promised 6.13 driver is released :

    When are you going to release that driver guys ?

    Please don't add to your already bad reputation by saying "when it is ready".

    What is the feedback from RC2 ?
    Will there be an RC3 ?

    Your excuse that you will not be "held to ransom" by timetables is wearing mighty thin. If you have time to piss around with other projects ("displacement activity"), then you have time to Do The Right Thing.

    This is directly to the developers and no-one else. I am sick fed up of people sticking in their tuppence and airing their irrelevant views. And as for the violent nutjobs, well the least said about them the better ...

    I thought I made it clear that I was not inviting irrelevant claptrap from the usual suspects.

    There is no obligation on my part to answer any questions here. The onus is entirely on the developers to explain their tardiness.

    However, suffice to say, it is the responsibility of ALL linux users to unswervingly hold the developers to account. Anyone who cannot see that, needs to have a long hard look at themselves.

    Please stop this bullshit, it will not help having a release soon, do you understand it?
    You aren't also the only one waiting for a stable 6.13, I have several debian machines which already have 6.12.902.

    Thanks for your "advice". Needless to say, I totally disagree with your assessment.

    The only way that driver is EVER going to be released is if the developers are shamed into action.

    That's the most clueless comment I've read this year. That kind of pressure is the best way to delay a project further and undermine developers' motivation.

    Someone smart would instead involve themself, go over open bugs, make a list of the things that are preventing a stable release, look at ways to fix them and generally be helpful, instead of just being an ass. If you want to do something every month, make yourself useful and maintain a list of open bugs, who's working on them and what's the general consensus on what to do with them.

    Your general demeanour in posts is quite frankly unacceptable.

    I can't even begin to imagine what must have happened in your life to make you such a horrible person, but clearly you have issues that go far beyond those you seem to find of such importance here.

    Please do the rest of us a favour, and take your abusive rants elsewhere. Preferably somewhere that offers you the medical attention you are so clearly in need of.

    Gordboy, this is not the way to handle things when you are upset with free software. If you continue in posts like these you will be banned.
