Why are you rebasing the harley code into 3.2?  It was my understanding that
PTFS knew it was too late for the code in harley to be included in 3.2, but
that it could be integrated properly into 3.4.  That is why it was released
in its entirety for now rather than as patches.

Also, I believe that code will be released more frequently from PTFS than
every 6 months.  It is just that any given piece of code is going to be
tested by the PTFS customer base first.  However, I believe their release
cycle will be more frequent than 6 months (though I don't remember the

How do other vendors develop their code?  What is harely if it is not a
branch?  Is it not considered a branch because it has not been rebased since
October?  (These are sincere questions on my part.)

Most of what I'm saying is based on memory of various conversations I've had
so I hope I am not mis-stating anything.
