so how do we stop further continental drift?
Lennart, As the original author of teh USB code, you have a unique
We have a probelm with our USB code procedures in that we have a desire to
maintain compatibility with you, yet we have several people who are
doing work on USB
(including one who has rewritten parts of the drivers) who do not have a
motivation to send NetBSD PRs etc.
What is your situation at the moment.. You commented that it has been
since you were closely working with the EHCI driver. Should we send
you for approval, inclusion and re-integration back to FreeBSD?
Do you have time for that sort of thing? should we make some
person/group of people
a USB cabal? I know that I'd like to make lots of simple changes such as
coments in places where the code gets trickier, but I'm very loath to
make the diffs
any greater than they are. It is very hard to work on the USB code when
there seems to
not be a procedure for getting that work put back into the sources.
