RE: FLAME____ Why is the kernel source not included



Why can't we just let it go?  This bickering is a waste.  When FC3 is
released, the source will be whereever the source is.  End of story.

How can you possibly imply what Alexander is/is not aware of. Unless, of
course, you are a mind reader.

Being rude is what you have been good at with this thread.  Including
calling one of the most helpful persons on this list a moron.

This list is for the released versions of Fedora, but from his posts I
believe he is very aware of the changes and upcoming release although it
is not yet ripe for inclusion in discussion here.

And it is documented that the kernel sources for FC3 will be on the
source disks and not in the binary distro.

That does not change the fact that they are included in the distro.
