The reason it took 3 weeks appears to be because that's around how long it took Kees to come up with a general-case demonstration of the bug. You really have to stretch a bit to argue that Kees was acting in any way other than as someone trying to work out the technicalities of the bug, and just trying to get other technical people interested in the problem, on that basis alone. And if you look at the upstream bug various people (from various vendors) discussed it.

Isn't part of the benefit of Linux that it provides a way for commercial organisations to work semi-mutually to further the interests of *shared* code.

Again, these accusations appear less than solidly founded. It surely can not be good to start creating an atmosphere where people are afraid to talk to other developers of a project about a bug just because they work for a different vendor.

"Again, these accusations appear less than solidly founded. It surely can not be good to start creating an atmosphere where people are afraid to talk to other developers of a project about a bug just because they work for a different vendor."

If you're looking at this and merely seeing evidence at attempts to collaborate, well that's hardly fun and interesting. Try harder to blur the facts around to support some sinister conspiracy theory. That is a LOT more interesting, and sells a lot more ads. This whole talk about thinking from solid foundations is plain silly; everyone knows better than to do that.

But whatever you do, DON'T just go talk to the developer directly to get the actual facts. That makes it a *lot* harder to maintain all the lovingly crafted anti-Canonical memes we've got. Next you'll be saying Kees contributes to upstream or some other madness like that.
