Well, some facts - The KDE overlay used package.mask as a directory. Some users who had been migrated to paludis in the genkdesvn times complained. The KDE team decided to remove that nice feature to keep users happy, progress be damned. And most of the KDE team members wish to re-add that feature. That ain't trolling, that be facts.

I fail to see what my blog has to do with discussing PMS and this mailinglist. Please stop confusing things by trying to throw in random unrelated things until people walk away in frustration and you win by being the bigger idiot.

I would say that documenting the current state of things is quite relevant to the issue at hand. If you are bothered by facts please don't try to engage in discussions.

I couldn't have said it better. I doubt you'll listen to your own advice though. Even after forking PMS[1] and throwing a tantrum. And here something completely unrelated: <darkside_> bonsaikitten: you know the best part in response to your blog post is? <darkside_> bonsaikitten: python.eclass uses "+=" in it, so portage can't be installed with bash-3.0 ;) I couldn't have said it better. Stupid reality not obeying! [1] http://archives.gentoo.org/gentoo- pms/msg_d06ee6e4fdbd43f9129125daaae2ad14.xml
