Re: another rant about stability vs. staleness

You know, this thread has become nothing if not redundant.  It's also started repeating itself and saying the same things over and over again.

As has already been said in this thread and elsewhere in this forum, CrunchBang is Debian Stable with Openbox plus some custom text configs and a very few custom-compiled binaries.

As has already been said in this thread and elsewhere in this forum, if a user needs newer packages, we're more than happy to help them out or direct them to a more rolling distro that will better meet their needs.

As has already been said in this thread and elsewhere in this forum, it would be nice if corenominal were more actively involved in this forum and more responsive to pull requests.  (Insert obligatory finger joke here.)

Regarding the IRC, I really have no idea how and/or why new users keep finding their way over there; any support on IRC is completely unofficial and unrelated to this forum, as has been stated multiple times in this forum.  (Seriously, who keeps pointing people to the IRC?  Stop it!  Now! mad  I don't even know who's keeping that channel open. roll )

@sysaxed:  Have you PMd or emailed corenominal regarding the github situation?

@Copper0:  That new user actually sounds a little more experienced than the average CrunchBang user.  (EDIT:  He's certainly more experienced than I was when I first found my way to CrunchBang.)

Re: another rant about stability vs. staleness

Two years ago when I started to use #!, I read its 'About' text, and I understood it as:
- I, corenominal, made #! for myself, to have system I need/use/whatever
- I, corenominal, am a nice person, so I will let others use #!
- I, corenominal, don't care if you like it or not
- I, corenominal, don't care if you need <this-or-that-app-or-feature>; I don't need it, so I won't put it in #!, do it yourself
- I, corenominal, don't have time/energy/whatever to make it truly 'democratic' multideveloper project, so bugger off
(of course, I exaggerated a bit).

Why you - sysaxed and ew, among others - cannot accept this?
