Just a commentary on http://www.kroah.com/log/2005/11/03/ and the
whole "no more proprietary drivers" thing auf Deutsch, innit?

OSDL apparently needs a Person of Authority to explain "no more
proprietary drivers" to OSDL-JP.  Something about preserving face for
the folks involved.  So Wookie asked Greg K-H, for some reason.  (I've
no idea why he didn't ask Linus, who's on the payroll.  Maybe said PoA
needs to be outside OSDL?)

I think it's very nice of Greg to help them out.  


Trying to be charitable to my ex-boss,
