Tobias Powalowski and his nonsensical maintenance decisions

fnodeuser-3
i do not thank you for your conclusion jumping and for the censorship ("I have put you on moderation.").

you have disappointed me Florian.

time to set the record straight.

the above reply was rejected yesterday by little Florian for this reason:

i know. it is so 'inappropriate' that Pope Francis would have died if he ever read it.

now, on to the rest.

about the '4+ days' thing. reread my message, carefully, because you have difficulties comprehending what i typed.
hint: it is about delaying things for no good reason.

two more maintenance examples, a recent Antonio Rojas one (once again, he edited today another imperfect PKGBUILD
file and left it imperfect), and a Sébastien Luttringer one (an example of stupidity):

an md5 hash is still used and ftp.gnu.org is HTTPS-enabled. nevertheless, i must say that he has improved.

he has learning difficulties.

Carsten Mattner,

yes, it is true. sometimes things break, but things can be fixed and there are ways to avoid breakage. RTFM and/or RTFW
is a requirement.[1] also, because of evolution, each one of us possess a brain that can do 'miracles' when it is actually
used. use it, people. i know that there are people for whom the activity of thinking is extremely painful, but we cannot
stop 'rolling' because of them.

in almost all cases it is the AL user's fault.

if one is careless and clueless, bad things can and do happen. that is true almost everywhere, not only in system administration.

PS: Florian's censorship necessitated the use of a different address. any complaints about the message being out of the existing
threads are invalid and remarks about my disposable email address are irrelevant.

Florian, remove me immediately from 'moderation' to prove: 1. that you actually want to have an honest discussion about anything
and everything, 2. that you are a decent person.

PPS: whoever you are, you are so cute! port scanning my IP address yesterday, and today registering around with my name.

Whoa.

Why PKGBUILD need to be perfect?
don't need to... And I think PKGBUILD is only thing in AUR, not in this
Mailing list.

Also, you need to calm down a little bit, think about what you did.
