A dream comes true ... No more me who writes almost all that code ...
SGI has hired David

> and equipment for David to work on. *All* results will be GPLed (SGI
> will retain ownership so we can use it under a different copyright if
> we want) and all results will go out to the net.
> We will want to cooperate and coordinate with the existing
> Linux/MIPS team, seeing as you have accomplished so much already.
> I'm not sure how much overlap there is, since the SGI devices are probably

> Please add David Miller, firstname.lastname@example.org, to this alias so he
