Who said anything about any kernel?  I'm waiting for organization to
happen so I could get a list of tasks to be performed and start working
on them.  I have no intention of wasting time trying to code modules
when no one here can agree on anything, except that we want a Lisp
Operating system.  In the meantime I've made my commitment clear,
and have donated my services in what few roles have popped up --
namely as manifesto writer, vote tabulator, and maintainer of
duty rosters, and the occasional plea for organization -- a plea
which gets ignored.

I'll get to work when there's work to be done and there's a
consensus on what we will do.  We are far from that goal -- and
the more I read this mailing list, the more I feel that this
project may very well die before ever having been started.
