If you feel I'm attacking you, then I apologise.  My personal feeling is
that my response was very mild and not directed to you.  I haven't
responded to your earlier "fastened lastriting" messages on purpose.
Now that Matt brought it up for this package, I just liked to point out
that we have a policy, that was made for some reason, and that you
violated it.

I realise that it may look like I'm picking just on you.  I'm not.  This
is the risk you run as one of the top committers of Gentoo.  I think you
do a lot of good work, and I hope you'll keep on doing so for a long

You just tend to change rules as you see fit every once in a while,
which is a bad thing for Gentoo.  I don't like all policies either, but
I stick to them (for as far as I'm aware of them), because if we all
would start to ignore what we don't like, then what would be the point
in having those policies at first?

Again, this doesn't mean that each policy in its current form is
de-facto the best thing or something like that.
