Gentoo

I’m seriously disappointed in Gentoo; even after my last post on the topic the Gentoo quality seems to be on a downward spiral, rather than climbing up. The problem is social: too many developers don’t give a fuck.

Let me be clear: I’m not pretending that we should be never wrong, and that mistakes can’t happen. We are, they happen. This is why we have the unstable/testing support. But at the same time, we should still try to think twice and commit once.

So what kind of problems upset, demoralise and disappoint me? It’s the most pernicious ones; like those we’ve been warning about for years, those that we could see coming from a mile away, and those that are caused by sheer lack of testing for important packages.
