Re: withdrawal propagation (was E.E. Times?)

so talk to your provider about deploying it, don't bash
cisco who has already rolled new images

and on the point of providers, do you really think they
would continue to run code that causes them problems
(whether cisco calls it a "bug" or an "optimization")?
if providers thought it was a bug, then they would have
anxiously awaited an announcement for an image that had
the fix so that they could deploy it

a bit of common sense is needed here, as i've tried to
point out, but people seem to prefer to create problems
where there are none

And more people are likely to upgrade if it is phrased as a bugfix.

if you think it's an optimization, then the new code is available

This will make people think that it isn't anything to worry about.

why are we still talking about this?

Because its still happening?
