I am not saying that the people who work on this are crap. I am saying
that the *quality* of what is being offered as Release Candidates has
declined. Very basic and intrinsic parts of the installation, such as
being able to find GCC or having a make.conf are broken.
I, as a user, have spent time on irc helping others over these problems
so they are not put off and migrate to a binary distribution that "just
works". I had even offered time to you as a tester with an oldworld
machine to help resolve some of these ppc problems. Time and resources
are limited for everybody, and by working as a community, we are able to
work around these problems. I can fix my system, and tell others how to
fix theirs, but you are the one who can actually prevent the problems in
the first place.
I was not trying to attack anyone personally, just expressing my
disappointment at the turn gentoo-ppc has taken recently.
