I'm going to stop, but I want to answer some points that I think
should not be left unanswered.

I already explained why the differences are not relevant, but you are
not willing to listen. How about buildroot? You are probably going to
find another excuse to ditch their policy. So if you are not going to
allow comparisons with other projects, and you are not willing to try
new things, then you are just going to keep thinking the way you are
thinking, and that's that.

You clearly didn't follow my analogy at all.

Good, so we agree that maintainers should send more patches for
review. The only difference is that I think the bar should be even
higher, but I guess that's not relevant... what is relevant is whether
Mans thinks the bar is high enough, and Michael is reaching it.
