All I did was criticize behaviour. I never criticized Greg's or anybody's
work. Read my message again. I called pure LFS <quote>a technically sound
idea</quote><paraphrased>that does not need to be promoted with


p.s.: I've replied to the other messages in private. If anybody needs
clarification of what I meant, mail me, not the list. I'm not subscribed
to lfs-chat (and of course I won't subscribe just to participate in a
flame war).

p.p.s.: Because the 2 main points of my message were probably lost, I'd
like to repeat them here: 

a) I do not want to see any more flames, mild or strong, against Alan Cox
on lfs-dev. This damages the reputation of LFS.

b) I would like "pure LFS" to be renamed to an unambiguously technical
name without "moral dimensions".

I think these are very reasonable points and I'd like to have them
discussed as such.
