I am replying here at no particular point in the thread because its
hard to find the right spot to interject.
I am a lurker on this list, I joined it a few years ago because I was
interested in the development process for gentoo, and because I like to
early adopt and be aware of impending changes.
I am a long time user of gentoo, a strong gentoo advocate, almost to
the point of zealotry. I have introduced many people to gentoo, and
have given talks to my local LUG, run gentoo installfests and
contributed to the -users list, the forums and the bugzilla.
However the behaviour displayed in this list, and in particular this
thread are downright embarassing. I used to be proud of being a gentoo
user and following a group of dedicated and clever developers. Now I
just want to find a quick and easy way to get rid of it. You have had
your antics displayed to the world via a thrashing on slashdot, and
most of you thoroughly deserve the public outing.
Its time you people had a good look at yourselves. Start behaving like
adults, not children fighting over the toys in the sandpit. You make it
hard to promote gentoo when you are arguing over the wording of people
announcing a new project.
