Maybe not all maintainers suffer from continous lack of collaboration
and community feedback.

Cool (where are the patches, btw ???).

We would certainly be happy to keep a 2.4 branch of MTD alive if there
would be any noticable support available instead of whinging about the
brokenness of the MTD CVS.

But we certainly do not get any further, when people have patches around
and complain why we have not included them into MTD CVS by magic
awareness of the solution.
