Well, according to one of the definitions at

"A rant is an argument that is fueled by passion, not shaped by facts."

The use of foul language in that G+ post indicates some sort of
passion. But fine, let's consider it not a rant.

Then this is not a rant either. What exactly is wrong with this
statement? Aaron himself admitted that the improvements of
communication are needed. This was all your nice and friendly internal
arm-netbook eoma68 talk about improving your software development

Except that it also touched linux-sunxi wiki, linux-sunxi defconfigs
and the mali400 graphics drivers support on sunxi hardware. And kinda
implied that a poor job is also being done there.

Was there even any effort made to communicate with the linux-sunxi
community? The kernel sources are available on github (and the
Improv is already using them):

The github page links to the linux-sunxi wiki:

The linux-sunxi wiki has a link to the mailing list among
other information:

For the OpenGL ES support in X11 on sunxi hardware, I have a project
page here, which happens to list some contact information and
describes the process of reporting issues:

Yes, the OpenGL ES issue has been successfully communicated via IRC.
Nice job. Still Aaron described dealing with this particular issue
using WTF word. Now I'm really curious what was my fault and how we
can improve from this point?

Joem, if you have nothing really constructive to say, please just don't
get in the way. And I actually have nothing more to add to this topic.
What had to be said, had already been said. Cheers.

Best regards,
