10 The Comments of a Gentoo User Upon a Minor Point Made by Vapier
12 The first condition you list is a sort of nativism that I for one
13 would expect not to find in a successful copyleft project created on
14 the Internet. Why should the code Gentoo uses be written by Gentoo
15 developers? Nobody seems to have a problem with using someone else's C
16 compiler and installation tools (gcc, autoconf, automake). Resistance
17 to a package manager on the grounds that, "It wasn't originally
18 written by us!" could perhaps push technical arguments that actually
19 matter into the background.
21 Sincerely,
22 Christopher Covington
