Aagghhhhh!!! Why is everything always done over IRC????
The neglection of the reactos mailing lists is one of this _big_ things this
project does wrong.
- It forces the community into a sort of hidden niche group and
alienates people who don't use IRC
- It gives the impression that reactos activity is low. There are
thousands of people who follow this project aren't on IRC and have no idea
of what is going on.
- It arguably deters new people from joining because they can't
really get to grips with the project without becoming a slave to IRC
- It means important discussions are missed, even by the core team,
if they aren't watching the IRC chat 24/7 or miss a PM
I could go on and on with reasons of why you neglect the mailing lists is so
harmful, but I fear no one will listen to my cries.
Maybe I should vent my frustration in IRC for the niche community, and we
can all have an internal discussion about it???

Yes, please feel free to join our channel when you have any questions. I
will create a branch for your coming work, if you like.

Discussing issues on ros-dev maillist is fine. I asked Aleksiej to pass you
the irc channel discussion mostly for helping you out with basic ROS stuff
like compilation, VM setup and testing issues.

I see you're busy discussing other stuff and my message went unnoticed :) I
made a look to existing network branches, found many of them. LWIP is
interesting. Alexey said the best way is to join your irc channel. I will
try to occasionally join, but in your project, mailing list must be a
primary point of discussion not irc channel.
I think I start from making a simple, but robust tcpip driver (with help of
numerously available source code of tcp/ip protocol implementations).
Hopefully you could give me branch access, it's gonna be hard to develop it

P.S. I really like your "kernel coding style", quite rare to see that in
opensource projects. Most of foss projects utilize linux-alike stlye, whic
is harder to read and not that clean.
