This is a typical "I love you, you are perfect, now change".
How long has she been involved in the kernel development progress?
She should have known all that time how Linus gets things done.
He has gotten a bit milder over the years, but mostly he has stayed
the same, he has stayed Linus.
Why does she presume that the entire process for the mailing list need to change because *she* has now
decided she does not like it. That is extremely arrogant. Nobody is forcing her to be part of the mailing
list or to work on the kernel. If she feels strongly about it, and you cannot work with people who have a
different way of communicate than what you prefer, then leave.
I feel icy fear stabbing at me by the use of "professional", what in the world does that really mean.
and lets get together and write a document about how people must behave on the kernel mailing list.
To me, this grandstanding that she is doing, is in order to buy herself more publicity and fame, and
gain points for "standing up" as a woman.
The collaboration on the Linux kernel is between extremely talented developers. Anyone who has spent
serious time working with developers, being a developer, knows that they can be very different from each
and very passionate.
