    once we have made sure that there are no vulnerabilities exposed in the release.

What mk actually means by this is that he has to go through the code and remove all the comment code that contains wise-ass remarks, swearing, complaining, and general unprofessional looking stuff.

Do a grep for "shit" and "fuck" in the Linux kernel is a fun exercise. Functions are often commented with "I don't know who the fuck put this mmap here but this function forces it to be ignored." Good stuff 😝

I once worked at a law firm where a word processor got sacked because of this. It's common practice for word processors to put placeholder phrases in long documents, to keep track of changes and so forth--near the end, they'll globally search, replace, sanitize, then save the safe public version. This instance, the lawyer needed the document asap for something last minute/urgent, the word processor working on the document wasn't around, he took the document that was on the server, presented it to his client... Only at this point did the lawyer realize the document he'd handed the client was filled with "FUCK" and "SHIT" and so forth. Bam. Word processor was fired that day.
