I figure as long as we have Robert Merrill feeding us good job listings we can
survive the occasional less-quality one. I try not to be to picky - if someone
needs a job they might not be picky either.

I agree with you though. This job listing has a low-likelihood of getting any
response from a Kernel hacker.

I've noticed Robert has really focused on all of our feedback with his
listings. I highly recommend we all feed him our job seeking business. He has
shown that he "gets" the FOSS community and our interests, or at the very
least is interested in listening.
