Spoken like a true European. And everyone wonders why Americans can't seem to get any help on this mailing list...
In typical fashion, we North Americans are simply going to have to help ourselves. And that's fine with us--we're getting used to this "cold shoulder" attitude from our foriegn "counter-parts".
Yes, in fact, that is exactly the situation.
And there is nothing wrong with it!
Hellmuth spent a LOT of his spare time already, you have the source which is the result of that, you have access to the hardware & the switch (neither of which Hellmuth has), what on earth makes you think you can ask Hellmuth (or anybody else!) to do it on your terms ???
It has nothing to do with Hellmuth being european, it has to do with the fact that he is a volounteer who have already put in more time and effort than you can possibly imagine, and then you come in like a spoiled brat and demand that he make it work for you too.
I'm sorry Biff, we don't play that way around here!
I will be formally requesting that the FreeBSD core group start the "freebsd-us-isdn" mailing list.
There is no point in doing so, since the only purpose is to enforce a geographical split you perceive but which doesn't exist in reality.
P.S. Forgive me if I've clouded the issue with too many facts. Sorry.
You most certainly havn't, and there doesn't seem to be any reason to fear that it will happen any time soon.
Instead of replying: please switch to Linux and leave us alone.
Poul-Henning, Spoken as a 386BSD/FreeBSD volounteer for longer than I care to remember.
