Althought you're the one of the most intelligent person on this forum (reading it everyday), but I'm not really sure we cannot talk about any other kernel as long as it's not complaining about bugs with them. I'm more than happy user of Boeffla Kernel, and I can't see nothing bad about talking about it here, I can say more - Boeffla Kernel is a miracle that let me play my beloved GTA Chinawars for 5 hours on 3 years old battery. Why not to share good (improving) tips here? Do you think that CM Team is the only right and capable to improve things here?
My advice - if something improves the experience with this ROM - share it. If something breaks the beautifulness of this ROM - don't share it. Easy like that.
I'm going crazy sometimes when people report problems with Gapps - what the hell is Gapps?? I'm not using it since 2013 , so I don't have any problems with it. But why people are installing them though they make more problems than gains? I don't know. But there're still complaining abot Gapps here, not on the Google Apps forum. Is this right?
As for GApps, well maybe you don't use it. That's great, but 99+% of Android users do use it so it is definitely in the ROM developers interest to know about GApps issues, but not necessarily to make changes due to the variants of GApps. After all, Gapps versions do make a difference, and there are forums for that purpose, although they are more detailed than "it bootloops".
So if you want to discuss other kernels - please don't - it's not helping the developers - you already contribute to those forums anyway. And if you don't want to read about Gapps, then just skip those posts rather than going crazy.
Sorry for OT
