So are you basically saying "You don't like fighting against Gentoo, and
Gentoo doesn't like fighting against you?". I think I might have a
mutually agreeable solution! 5
And yet still you keep fighting? Why? What do you *need* from Gentoo
that you can't get for yourself? A user base? A huge archive of
ebuilds ready and working? A large set of mostly silent developers to
maintain those ebuilds?
There's a neat little project called Exherbo you might have heard of.
It's trying to build up most of those things, and they don't put up with
incompetent, unknowledgeable people, so I'm sure they'll let you in, and
I'm sure you'll be happy there.
Yet still, you seem to *need* something from Gentoo. Given that, it's
bizarre that you're repeatedly disrespectful to members of its
community. It seems an odd tactic to present yourself so poorly when
you're in need of something...
Obviously Gentoo is taking up a lot of your time (simply time writing
replies to most every point raised on a thread), and you often seem
frustrated by the level of people you have to work with. So perhaps you
should direct your extensive energies exclusively at Exherbo?
I'm quite happy to continue working in a friendly helpful environment,
where simple questions are most often met with patient answers and
people are given the chance to learn, improve and help out where they
can. I'm happy to keep quietly maintaining my ebuilds and let the
people whose packages I package come up with the new stuff. You don't
seem to be, so perhaps this isn't the right place for you to contribute?
~ If you do want to contribute, perhaps you could consider the
environment you're working in, and be more accommodating to it rather
than fighting against it?
