1- I repeatedly told folks that I DO NOT OWN THIS HARDWARE. I am just
maintaining the kmod because nobody else does and people need it. I
would be more than happy to give it away to someone who owns the
hardware and can do tests.

2- The issue has been reported and the package will not be pushed to
stable. If you are using rawhide, you should get used to such things.

3- However pulseaudio is not just in rawhide. It is in stable. Even
worse, it is enabled by DEFAULT! Even more worse, IT IS THE DEFAULT
SOUND SYSTEM IN FEDORA!!! I have every right to blame on who made this
happen. Pulseaudio is pure crap, rt2860 drivers aren't good but they
work (sometimes).

I don't want to respond to this. Foul language belongs to its speaker.

I do appreciate your work and your time spent on this. But swallow the
big bite. IT DID NOT WORK. So, please for the good of humanity, kill
this package.

I had to change my PhD thesis topic twice. Why? Because my
calculations didn't work out right (I couldn't disprove my theory
either). So I had to put hundreds of pages of calculations and more
than a year-full of work to trash, literally. It happens. I just
accepted the fact and worked on something else.

If you are using firefox, just start typing "pulseaudio is..." on the
search bar with google engine. You'll see what suggestions it will
give you along the way.
