First of all, I wish to thank Andrew for his thoughts and time in responding. Such discussion relating to kernel development is refreshing.
As for reporting bugs, I've two in particular with 2.6.25[.x] that I've been loath to report:
Granted, I was hesitant to report either of these (until now) because I was unsure whether (1) was operator error, and whether (2) was expected new behavior given the patches submitted for 2.6.25. Plus, I didn't want to add yet another message to the (already crowded) LKML. But, I'm curious: would reporting either of these be appropriate?
I would certainly love to contribute to the kernel development project--I even subscribed to the LKML (having been inspired by our editor's eagerness to help with the Kill-The-BKL project)--but being a newbie, I could use a little guidance.
Thanks again to Andrew for his candor.
