okay, then just forgot that patch

of course that's our choice, that's not a problem. my problem is that
submitting the patches here requires some work. you know, a one-liner
sometimes a result of a half day of headache. then i submit here a
patch, and i even don't get a "rejected" answer after a week

good to know :)

thanks for the info

nothing just i can't write down everything about the patch in the mail
and then if you ask something, i won't know why i did something. look at
my "chroot - change working dir" patch: probably you haven't answered
because it takes time to prepare again the testsuite for verifying what
i wrote

the other problem with the slow review is that you reguralry find the
same bug what one of the patches fix, then you fix that, and then a)
just don't reply to my mail b) ask here why this fix is needed, it's
already been fixed. yes. two hours ago. and the patch was sent two
_weeks_ ago

> So, there's no reason to put us under pressure.

ok, as you want. just i see less and less motivation to submit patches
here, but that's your choice
