Dear Gentoo developers,

I am a grateful Gentoo user, I'm pretty happy with Gentoo and already have five
installations of it, including one running a pilot project at my work.
I started working with Linux 6 years ago and came through RH-SuSE-Ubuntu.
None of them (except maybe SuSE 9.0 for some time) was perfect for me,
until I tried Gentoo. So firstly, *thank a lot* guys.

Recently I've subscribed to this list because I thought this is the right way
to start being involved in Gentoo development process --- I thought technical
discussions are of most importance here.

But what do I see? For more than a week, I need to came through dozens of
pure-fanatical e-mails having nothing except personal insults, FUD, idiotic
wikipedia links etc. etc. I can't believe it was always like this. I really hope
this is a temporary burst, caused by proposed EAPI change or something else,
because it makes my plans of carefully introducing
Gentoo as business-critical-ready-os to my employer much more complicated.

Maybe it is time to create a list gentoo-flame or gentoo-fud and post everything
there? I'm subscribed to several development and user mailing lists and I
nowhere I saw anything like this, for so long period of time.

Sorry if I don't understand something --- I'm really a new gentoo-dev reader,
but I feel sorry for this brilliant distribution sinking in the darkness
of FUD. Please please *do* stop it.

Many thanks in advance,


gentoo-dev@lists.gentoo.org mailing list
