Re: Do not make mksh the default shell on macOS


I would like to reply to some of the initial assertions you made:

What makes you think that SIP was the only reason to go with mksh? And
more importantly: Why do you want this commit reverted in the first
place? mksh is a *much* better bootstrap shell than pdksh, so
independently of whether it solves SIP or not, why not use it?

The committer stopped interacting with you because you got
increasingly rude and aggressive.

Jonathan is one of the most friendly and reasonable members of this
community. You come along and criticize without offering anything in

In addition, you seem to believe that you can use this particular
thread as a way of "telling on" Jonathan, the way an elementary
schooler tells on a classmate in front of the teacher. That's not how
this works.
