    You know, this reply of yours was quite inconsiderate.
    I've spent a good part of 2003 maintaining a patch for all ports in
    the pear virtual category before it got commited; several months of
    keeping up with other changes to the tree, and it took a few months
    before Edwin finally got around to commiting it.

    I have contributed significant functionality to devel/subversion,
    I have fixed/updated 160 unfetchable/unbuildable ports across the
    tree within a month.

    I have written most of the search target in ports.

    And I have had a good time doing it all.

    I don't believe that's bullshit. Do you?

How many Vietnam vets does it take to screw in a light bulb?
You don't know, man.  You don't KNOW.
Cause you weren't THERE.
