Does anyone know where we can find Chris Wright's sense of integrity?

If I were Chris, I wouldn't much appreciate the other man of a two man team completely
reversing the -stable policy while I was away on vacation without talking to me at all about
it, if that's indeed the case.  That's pretty slimy, really.  "Hi Chris, welcome back.  While
you were gone myself and the rest of the kernel developers decided that what you've been doing
since 2005 just isn't important at all, and we're going to stop assisting you.  Oh, and by the
way, not a single kernel developer came out in support of you.  We've decided that the new
policy won't be what you declared the policy to be, and we've already informed the world of it
without discussing it with you first."

If it is the case that he's just on vacation, I hope that when he returns he gets things back
to normal, and beyond that, expresses to the other kernel developer why their security-related
opinions are just unacceptable.
