Hey guys, this leads to nothing.

I agree with Gilles that a distro package that could appear to users
like it's as mature as upstream while it isn't does not help anyone. But
not all the work here is paid, and resources will remain limited. So
Roland's remark is valid as well that not everything can be done
instantly in The Perfect Way.

The only way to resolve this without killing the idea of ready-to-use
Xenomai package is to openly discuss the problems of both sides and try
to find optimal solutions. I also bet Roland would be happy about
patch-based discussions - just like we are for upstream. Just let the
discussion take place here on this list, in an objective manner, and
ideally before things may show up in releases etc.
