Of course there is push-back in your mail. Basically you told us we are 
wasting our time trying to do a mobile shell which could replace Android. 
That's the pushback I'm talking about. We have seen this for years since we 
started with Plasma Active. There is a strong pushback from parts of the 
community, telling us what we should do and what we should not do. It's 
speaking that you don't even realize what you wrote.

Of course nobody giving us the pushback realizes the level of overlap there 
is, how features coming from "mobile" get back to the desktop, etc. etc. The 
mobile efforts in Plasma are extremely important for our desktop. It's where 
we can roll out new ideas, new technologies. The constant pushback though, is 
very derailing.

And now see this in the context of you concluding anything from the GENIVI 
mail. Who would dare to answer on a public mailing list that he is interested 
to look into it, if the most likely outcome is, that other people tell him 
that he's wasting his time.
