15 True, it's fundamentally impossible for Gentoo to get rid of all the
16 problems with ebuilds.
18 What I offer is to make the response and self-assessment on Gentoo
19 changes automated and fast. Then it will be getting better by itself.
20 The rate of experience Dev is attaining will jump several times up and
21 the level drudgery will decrease in the same proportion.
23 And it's perfectly in Gentoo style. This is the fastest penguin,
24 erroneously married to a snake because the marriage looked easy from
25 the first but now it's getting harder and harder.
27 We have the Penguin but forgot to add neurons to his skin.
29 He is poked but doesn't know about that and doesn't respond
30 because he can't feel.
