17 Which is it, Chris?
19 Impossible that portage will ever be able to really support anything
20 like this...
22 or...
24 already done and I (along with Jean-Francois and Michael Schilling) am
25 just too stupid to see it?
27 Make up your mind...
29 For all the credit that I give to the Gentoo developers, you are one
30 from whom I would withdraw it. You are merely a polarity responder and
31 as such, not worth engaging any further. You would do Gentoo a service
32 by keeping your mouth shut in response to posts like mine (and many
33 others I'm sure). If I were not so self-assured, you would simply drive
34 me away from Gentoo with such ugly remarks, and I've no doubt that you
35 have driven away many others who are less self-assured.
37 You're in my kill file now, so don't waste your time and the bandwidth
38 by responding. All mailing lists have a topic and attempting to
39 ridicule other people is not on-topic in any of them... certainly not
40 here. It just facilitates making you look like a jerk which you need no
41 assistance with.
