Copyright infringement ?? You asked me to take the discussion to the mailing
list, no ?

Not sure which one you're talking about, but feel free to post it to the

The only reason I don't send some messages to the list, is because I don't
want to bother people with a message that is only intended for someone
specific (like asking you to have a look at a patch, which was sent to the
list earlier). That's all !

Ok, np.

I know, but I really don't understand why you have problems with someone
fixing someone else's bugs.

I'd think you'd encourage that, certainly if the fixes are backed by unit

Ok, and I was happy to do that. And look what we're keeping ourselves busy
with now. I don't understand why every patch that I submit needs to cause
this much discussion.

I would understand it, if the changes were not covered by unit tests. But
they are, and they clearly show bugs in Mono (you can call them
compatibility issues if you want, I call them bugs ;-)).

Man , I really don't understand what you're doing here. Are you really
enjoying this ?

Do you currently need a lawyer if you want to get involved in open-source
development ?

Instead of appreciating patches and encouraging people to submit them, you
give them this talk about copyright infringement and stuff ?

All I was trying to do was to get a few bugs fixed, nothing more and nothing
less ...

This should supposed to be fun!
