Corbet -- Thank you for this series, I enjoyed it tremendously.
However, I am stunned, looking back, on the consistent slant in your coverage of the Bitkeeper
affair; your unwavering support of Larry McVoy as he grew increasingly unreasonable, up until
he pulled the rug out from under Linux, prompting you to essentially call Andrew Tridgell a
'hypocrite' (after mischaracterizing what happened with the conditional "if Tridge really did
eat babies then he's a bad bad man").
I get the sense from the articles that McVoy is a friend of yours and I can understand that it
must be difficult to keep journalistic detachment when reporting on people you know and like.
But I can't help but wonder if you, with the passage of time, now see the Bitkeeper affair as
a black mark on your otherwise superb publication?
