So, if I interpret things correctly you essentially say that you'd rather
want me to fix other peoples's software (like the git rcs) instead of
fixing our own software (like trying to trace that new libdiskfs dead
lock I just found)?  Having me do both is not possible genereally,
because my time is limited.

(Of course, I always try to do both and it sometimes even works.  But I'd
like the majority of the work I do to be in the Hurd related software and
not third party software.)

That's not what I said.
