And by "YOU", that would be the people writing ebuilds and committing them without test suites or integration testing of any kind. The devs who yell and complain all day about "standards" and "not breaking the tree" then go and break the tree and violate any standard ever set. With the possible exception of mgorny and pacho, I'm not sure if I have any faith in anyone left in Gentoo. I knew the political climate in Gentoo was always yearning for better days, but I could never have foreseen how bad the technical aspects could become. This attitude of "the user is to blame" is the reason I moved Adélie's upstream elsewhere. I am still running Gentoo on a few production servers, but this whole thread and /especially/ this message has made me realise I'm probably better off with Fedora until Adélie is ready. At least I have a good reason to unsubscribe now. Farewell, - --arw - -- A.
