How are [MAINTAINER] patches handled and why aren't PRs FIFO?

I realize that you care deeply about this topic, however IMO your last 
few posts are a little more vitriolic than we we usually like to see on 
the FreeBSD lists. (And yes, I'm sure your response would be that this 
is not how they were intended, so I'll save you time writing it.)

You need to realize that the FIFO PR assignment idea is not going to 
happen. Given that it's not going to happen, you might want to 
reconsider whether or not continuing to post on the topic will be helpful.

Meanwhile, I would like to request (on a personal level, I'm not in 
charge of anything) that you take 24 hours off and refrain from posting 
altogether. Then if you still feel strongly that you have something to 
say (keeping in mind paragraph 2 above) the hope would be that with a 
little time to cool off you can say it with less emotion.

	Yours for the right price.  :)
