I am not blaming you for working on security patches and updates. I am just 
saying that you're not thinking stuff through, do not listen to review and 
reasoning. You are producing quick shots, often enough causing even a greater mess.

Actually, that's not true. I have just completed the Windows installer for 
IcedTea-Web on Windows, so users can start testing beta releases. ;-)

Good advice and good reasons are timeless. It does not matter how often you get 
them or when. It is important to appreciate, incorporate, and address them properly.

You often say, that I would not make any suggestions or give directions which 
way to go. But, if you would really take the time to actually /think/ about what 
I wrote, then you would find out that I indeed present quite comprehensive

Why should I post code on what you are currently working? Why should we post 
code on the same stuff? Review is not about posting code. Review is about 
spotting mistakes, giving advice (as well as in rejecting and accepting code), 
and figuring out the best course of action. Posting stuff on the same issue 
makes only sense if you have competing concepts and you're trying to find out 
which one is going to suit the requirements best.
