I don't give a damn if you're not buying it.  I'm not selling it.  It is
fact.  Also, as the primary author of catalyst, would it not make sense
to you that I might make changes to the code on my own machine and
actually *test* it before committing it to CVS?  I'm sorry that much of
the concepts of development escape you, but a this point, I don't care
what you think about it.

cvs.gentoo.org

You can go to viewcvs.gentoo.org and look at the gentoo module.
Catalyst is under src/catalyst.

Except for one thing.  We actually work with our upstream providers.  We
don't make demands of them and treat them like they are our personal
slaves.  Not to mention, there are many cases where we have to write our
own Makefiles, so this is a pretty stupid argument.  Then again,
consider the source.

No.  You cannot be reasoned with.  From the very beginning you've been
nothing but inflammatory and an asshole.  You're winning friends and
influencing people all over the place.

I'll gladly help people who want to be courteous about it.  I even
recommended you go to the gentoo-catalyst mailing list and ask
*specific* questions with anything you had a problem with when building
your CD.  Instead, you started making demands and being a general prick
to many people.

After all, am I also required to post my .vim files from my machines
that I do development on because "it's open source"? (Thanks joem!)

Don't be ludicrous.
