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. -Brad
