Please, stop ruining FreeBSD

First the RELENG_5 fiasco. I've never used a worse 
FreeBSD release in my whole FreeBSD experience. I've been using
since the 1.x days and I can tell you, RELENG_5 blows.

KSE only works on x86 and barely works on sparc. RAIDframe has never
worked on 5.x. What about alpha? Those people better grab a NetBSD
install CD.

If that wasn't enough, now Poul-Henning comes and, as usual, does
whatever he wants to. I'm Poul-Henning and I don't need to ask for
permission. I'll just cvs ci whatever I feel doing. Who cares, when
core@ doesn't have the balls to tell this guy to behave. The recent
ibcs2 thread is just another tip of the ice-cube of Poul-Henning's
of "team work".

I do most of my work in the network are of the kernel. I've been busy

with my cvsup clone (written in C), but I sometimes feel like I'm
wasting my time by devoting time and man hours to this. Please
Poul-Henning, play fair or create your own damned BSD.

Most people will agree that having Dillon play with his own toys is
for both FreeBSD and DragonFly. Let's create PoulBSD.
