As I wrote this, I realized that I'd done it, screwed up, but I'd already asked
the question, so I was hoping maybe it would have been overlooked. I justs got
access to this new Gentoo box today, I guess I got too anxious. Additionally, I
finally got all of my config question points settled, so I've finally been
What I ended up doing, was compiling ErrorF statements into the kbd driver, so I
knew things were working, I just needed to ascertain input and output params. I
got that done. My health decided to get in the way, unfortunately, so I'm
slower at the moment.
Goddamn Crohn's disease, being stomach-related, is extremely reactive to my
mood, it's as if some part of me knows when I least want to stop, and begins to
wave the warning flags. I just wish some part of that would give me some
conscious control of how my health-timing works.
Anyhow, sorry if I jumped a bit on that.
Another item, I have some small testing-related things I was thinking about
adding. It's stuff that would in no way affect any existing build. I wanted to
know the rules you'd have me follow, to get stuff like that committed. I have
no experience with a decentalized-action source code archive like git before, so
I can't even begin to guess what your rules are. I will not break your archive
(I'll experiment locally before I try to do any pushing to your archives). I
could detail it, or post the proposed changes somewhere, or commit them to my
archive and let you look (anyone who would give me an ssh line could have a
login to my box from me). Just give me your rules, ok?
