With all due respect, I don't think that you do.

The message is *not*

"Lawrence we don't won't your patches here , because we're an exclusive


"Lawrence, we don't find your time and talent valuable"

All of my comments stem from *one* high level requirement:

Don't break the code for existing boards - especially popular ones for
which I have some level of maintenance responsibility.

How you satisfy that requirement is up to you.

Just as you don't have a lot of time to do all the analysis and testing
to ensure that requirement is met; I don't have time to clean up every
patch that doesn't meet that requirement.  The time and effort you don't
expend gets pushed off to me or someone else.

I have tried to provide you with constructive criticism and guidance.  I
will not do your work for you.
