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?
