I don't give a damn if you're not buying it. I'm not selling it. It is fact. Also, as the primary author of catalyst, would it not make sense to you that I might make changes to the code on my own machine and actually *test* it before committing it to CVS? I'm sorry that much of the concepts of development escape you, but a this point, I don't care what you think about it.

Except for one thing. We actually work with our upstream providers. We don't make demands of them and treat them like they are our personal slaves. Not to mention, there are many cases where we have to write our own Makefiles, so this is a pretty stupid argument. Then again, consider the source.

No. You cannot be reasoned with. From the very beginning you've been nothing but inflammatory and an asshole. You're winning friends and influencing people all over the place. I'll gladly help people who want to be courteous about it. I even recommended you go to the gentoo-catalyst mailing list and ask *specific* questions with anything you had a problem with when building your CD. Instead, you started making demands and being a general prick to many people. After all, am I also required to post my .vim files from my machines that I do development on because "it's open source"? (Thanks joem!) Don't be ludicrous. -- Chris Gianelloni Release Engineering - Strategic Lead x86 Architecture Team Games - Developer Gentoo Linux
