Among the various web logs and news sites there's a sort of back and
forth recently about the quality of Linus' process and whether there
is or is not a problem with patch flow.

The very existence of the controversy proves the point: nobody has a
f-ing (demonstrable) clue of what the actual state of the process is
and *that* is the real problem.
