Eric, are you interested in pursuing this discussion further? You stopped replying, but that could be due to the holiday weekend.
Anyway, the conclusion seems to be:
- You violated the process as commonly understood by checking in a new module without sufficient consensus.
- What you checked in is no good; it needs to be redesigned and renamed.
- If you absolutely do not want to use the patch manager for this, you can check it in under the nondist/sandbox part of the tree.
You can move your code to the sandbox, or I can delete it for you.
