Speaking for myself, I recently asked you one simple question politely,
got no response; repeated it, no response; third time, no response.
That was a quick acid-test of whether you understood interaction
with the Linux community being a two-way street, i.e., you understood
we're not a zero-cost consulting firm, and that ignoring _our_ questions
and concerns will piss us off and demotivate pondering your problems.
IMO, you're now observing that _we're_ aware of not being a zero-cost
Nonetheless: Best of luck to you.
> The time it takes [...] would be far better spent....
Yeah, y'know: _Our_ time. We get to decide how to spend it.
You'll probably have happier outcomes if you fix the attitude.
_Or_ hire a consultant: Many consultants will happily work on anything
the customer wants under any conditions, as long as they're paid time
