Please note that it is hard for me to reply to you.

Your emails insult my friends, my hobby[1], and my favorite operating=20
system. Maybe you don't mean it that way, but that is the way I read them.

Yes, I agree you have some good ideas, but they come across to me as=20

Even when you ask honest questions, I feel you are patronizing.

If you have a question or want to share advice, please don't assume we=20
haven't heard it before -- when in fact we may have discussed it before=20
and even planned it that way for good reasons. Please keep your comments=20
short and simple and please don't be so opinionated.

I have participated in many open source communities. I use NetBSD because=
overall it has a very friendly and knowledgable community -- in addition=20
to providing a simple, secure and efficient operating system=20
infrastructure that makes it easy to use as-is and to expand upon. I also=
use and support NetBSD professionally -- because it works for me and my=20

As for your desktop application agenda ... I saw your other email about=20
applications you'd like to have.

Please note that most of us are volunteers. (I have been paid to do pkgsrc=
work by customers, but I think this is rare.)

Feel free to create a wiki page at the site with pkgsrc=20
requests -- if it doesn't exist yet. (While there at that wiki start or=20
find a page that links to all its content.) Also see the suggestions in=20
pkgsrc/doc/TODO (and email me with your suggestions for that if you want).=
Also we have a work-in-progress list at sourceforge that you may politely=
ask pkgsrc packagers to assist you with creating your needed packages.

Also to make a complete solution, suggest some packages and configurations=
that should be bundled together so we can make a meta-package.

Working on editors/tea for you now ...
