I don't have all the drafts handy, but it looks to me like 2nd
Quadrant never got mentioned _anywhere_ in the drafts.
Grepping through my relevant mail folder, the only mention I see of
2nd Quadrant as other than part of your email address was when Josh
Berkus was trying to point people to write useful things rather than
squabbling. To wit:
"As a compromise between Peter's perspective and mine/Andrew's, I
think that we should focus on the features but name-drop. So we
need to work in company names at appropriate points, namely Fujitsu,
Afilias, Red Hat, Open Source Development Labs, Command Prompt, 2nd
Quadrant, and SRA-America (am I forgetting someone?). The names
should get across the multi-company involvement without dwelling on
That was kind of "pre-drafts."
Personally, I didn't have "2nd Quadrant" in mind; when thinking of
PITR, it's your name that comes to mind, not the company name.
Perhaps a company has been forgotten, and needs to be added...
let name="cbbrowne" and tld="acm.org" in String.concat "@" [name;tld];;
The large print giveth and the small print taketh away.
