I'd like to know the last time the qemu-devel list has had fewer e-mails per month than the perf devel list (oh wait, that's right, it makes much more sense to suck down the whole linux-kernel feed if all you care about is perf counters)
KVM, QEMU, and kernel project management

Then there's the KVM people, who cause an immense amount of code churn and discussion on the mailing list, but as far as I can ever tell don't contribute much to the original core of Qemu. It's a lot of layers upon layers of additional stuff. Fine and good, but for some reason the KVM people seem to think they are somehow saviors of the code base. Not true. And things would have been a lot better if the KVM people had worked on things in the Qemu tree to start with, instead of forking and then causing massive churn trying to merge things back to a sensible state.
