And I heard several folks including me tell you this was a good idea.
Why is their input affecting you and not mine and others?  I must of
have missed the mail unless it was private to you?  IF they want to not
have the implementations on the shirts which is recoginition to the
engineers making all this *** really *** happen then let them stand up
in public.  

And I think the vendors who have done implementations, providing FREE
kits and upgrades, working with the users to debug problems, in some
cases donating hardware, taking the time to manage the bug fixes we hear
on the 6bone, have a right to be noted on these T-Shirts and vendors who
say they are doing who don't participate on the 6bone should be seen
that they are not participating.


But more importantly I TOTALLY OBJECT to this not being an OPEN
discussion on the 6bone when the only reason the T-Shirts can say
anything about the 6bone in part is because of the "IMPLEMENTATIONS"
running code.

It feels like POLITICS is taking precedence over DOING THE RIGHT THING.
And you know how I am about that and the one thing that sends me into a loop
of getting really pissed off.  I hope I am wrong????
