13 What Gentoo needs is less immediate writing of patches and more careful
14 thinking about how a complex mess of sort-of working, poorly
15 interacting features can be unified into a smaller number of correct,
16 coherent concepts. Right now most of the patches are fixing screwups in
17 earlier patches that were caused by implementing the wrong thing (and
18 often introducing new problems along the way).
20 The fact that you have code that does something does not automatically
21 imply that doing it is a good idea.
