From my perspective, there have been two problems. The first is that it
earlier iterations of Suspend2, I tried some ways of improving
reliability that made the code more invasive and was an early adopter of
modifications that have since been merged. Since that time, those changes
have been merged and/or dropped, so the code is now not very invasive at
all. Nevertheless, the reputation remains. The second problem has been my
relationship with Pavel, which just hasn't worked because he's hell-bent
on a different path. I try to be gracious and forgiving, but I'm not so
stupid as to know when there's no hope of dealing with someone. On the
whole, though, I think I have good relations with the rest of the kernel
community. I'm more than willing to listen to feedback, and everything
sensible that gets asked of me does get done. If I have a third problem,
it would be that I'm not getting things done as fast as might be liked,
but I am trying.
