It's about time someone said this and I honestly think that lots of
developers will be thinking the same.
In the end, PMS is just a way for them to spread their own agenda and
force it on both the developers and the users so maybe it would be best
for all if paludis and it's developers were to concentrate on making
paludis for a different distro. Trollix may be a good place to start...

Nope. What I see as a problem is that the primary author and current
de facto maintainer is so much of an asshole that he was forcibly
removed from the Gentoo project, which PMS is supposed to be written
for, and has ostracized (at least) one of the package manager's
development team with his constant not-so-subtle attacks. Quite
frankly, I'd prefer see Gentoo take control over the specification that
defines the most important single feature of Gentoo and remove the
non-Gentoo developers from its development. No offense, but you're not
a Gentoo developer any longer and you shouldn't have a say in how *we*
manage ourselves. You're more than welcome to contribute code, fork, or
whatever the hell you want. This is open source, after all, but that
doesn't mean you should be allowed to hold the position of power over
Gentoo that you've been granted.
