Extracts from yesterday's LKML:
"I need to change some of my behavior, and I want to apologize to the people that my personal behavior hurt and possibly drove away from kernel development entirely."
"I am going to take time off and get some assistance on how to
understand people's emotions and respond appropriately."
"This is not some kind of "I'm burnt out, I need to just go away"
break. I'm not feeling like I don't want to continue maintaining
Linux. Quite the reverse. I very much *do* want to continue to do
this project that I've been working on for almost three decades."
"This is more like the time I got out of kernel development for a while
because I needed to write a little tool called "git". I need to take
a break to get help on how to behave differently and fix some issues
in my tooling and workflow."
