Hi everyone,

I just want to follow up on the e-mail I just sent.


I will like to clarify what I just wrote.
. . .
This way, I will have to maintain two development branches, and that is a big burden.
. . .

I will instead will like to say,

"This way I will not have to maintain two development branches, and maintaining two development branches is a big burden."

That's all for the correction.
    Regarding the new drm-next-4.13 branch and the huge drm-next merge, no e-mail went out to the mailing list for archival purposes due to an error that happened on my local computer's send-mail.

 * [new branch]      drm-next-3.19 -> drm-next-3.19
 * [new branch]      drm-next-4.13 -> drm-next-4.13

As a result, you may not see an entry on openchrome-devel mailing list, but the drm-openchrome upstream repository did indeed get updated.
I am sure why happened, and I do not like what happened.
It will be appreciated if someone can tell me how I can avoid this situation in the future.
