I just watched the closing remarks by Tim Driscol at the dpdk summit....

http://youtu.be/r-JA5NBybrs

At time 4:30, he mentioned the "shock to the system" of developers
expecting a pat on the back and instead receiving critiques of their
code.....

I realized that I was one of those who failed to acknowledge the incredible
work the Intel Engineers and other contributors have produced.

Please let me acknowledge all of you and your efforts with a few comments:

1) Kudos!!:

2) The Packet Framework made me run around waving my hands in the air
yelling: "This is freaking awesome! I don't have to write it myself!!!"

3) The layered architecture is elegant.

4) Examples???? The examples are wonderful! Those who wrote the examples
are my heroes.

5) Docs? Clear, to the point, and better than the other projects we depend
upon (you know who you are)

6) 6Wind - Thank you for taking on the management of the repository and
website - your coordination effort is truly appreciated

7) Did I say the Packet Framework saved me so much time I was actually able
to cut back my coffee intake by 10%!!!!

8) Windriver - PktGen!!!!!  (though I really want to know more about
mcos....)

Finally,

I recently received a pat on the back for the application I have developed.
In truth, that pat should be passed on, since my application depends so
heavily on DPDK.

Thank you.

I encourage others to let the Intel Engineers and contributors know how
much we appreciate the time and effort they have given to DPDK.

Sincerely,


Daniel Chapiesky

Thanks Daniel. I'm sure the many people who've put a lot of time and effort into building DPDK will really appreciate your kind words.

To be clear, the only way you know if your open source is popular is if 
everybody finds the bugs and tries to work around and/or patch and/or file 
them to keep improving the product! Open source is only good when it does have 
bugs and critiques and if it doesn't it's probably unused or buggy. :-D

That being said, DPDK is a TON easier to work with than trying to do 
bare-metal or use a bunch of complicated expensive custom packet processing 
hardware. It's trying to solve a very complex problem, and the code is much 
cleaner than most similar networking code I've ever used.

So nobody working on it should take any of the stuff people might say 
personally... they wouldn't say it if they weren't beating on the product and 
using it to do other complex tasks of their own.

Matthew.

If you need more information about MCOS let me know as I did not write a lot of docs for it :-(

Thanks
