Thanks for the explanation, Russ. The correction was, however, to
Akemi's message.  ;-)

No, not a forgery but a statement of fact. At the time it was written
(I suppress the internal pedant who wishes to know how one may hear a
written word -- apart, of course, when using text-to-audio device
designed for the visually impaired), the current "bcat" kernel was
then based on the LKA 2.6.35.3 source tarball. (Now current:
kernel-2.6.35-4.bcat)

I'm ready to be corrected if the above statement was made on a CentOS
wiki page or within a centos-docs m/l thread . . .

"Silly me." Yes, I agree with you self-analysis. The silliness is
noted when one observes that the bcat kernel source package (for which
I am entirely and solely responsible) was attempted to be operated on
by following the tried and well-tested method that is documented
within the CentOS wiki, which is for use with the CentOS kernel source
package only. (A document of which I am, coincidentally, the
co-maintainer.)

However, no harm has been done. And I am pleased to see that other
members of my generation are also prone to moments of silliness and
can subsequently recognise when it has occurred.  :-)

Regards,
Alan.
