Luc, maybe the big problem here is that when we work on B instead of A you are focusing on the fact we did not do A and wondering if there is some kind of conspiracy behind the decision, rather than thinking about all the time and effort that goes into B. The reality here is that we have finite time and resources and we try to focus on whatever will allow the development community to make the fastest overall progress. Right now that means getting initial documentation and/or code out for things which are not supported in the drivers rather than going back and releasing internal docs which helped to get earlier parts of the driver stack going.
You don't have to agree with that approach, but it is what we are doing. If you have good arguments for changing those priorities please let us know.
You mentioned atombios docco earlier; we have three working atombios-based implementations plus the disassembler code you guys wrote and published -- do you really see atombios docco as the highest priority right now ? If something is not a high priority, then we are probably *not* going to be working on it in for a while, but please try to focus on what we *are* doing at least as much as the things we are *not* doing yet.
We have been able to cut down the time between launch and initial support with each new generation :
- the open source project started ~2 years after 5xx launched;
- we started working on 6xx maybe a year after launch, and were able to include 7xx in the same effort
- work on 7xx work started around launch but that doesn't really count because we didn't have working 6xx code to build on
- we were able to start on Evergreen support a bit *before* launch *and* had working 7xx code to build on
In other words, we've gone from being 2 years behind to starting work around launch time. I think that deserves a "Meets expectations" rating at the very least
Please try to understand that just because you believe one thing and I believe another, that doesn't make me a liar. I don't say things like that about you, please extend me the same respect.
