PS. Or maybe it's your tone that's the problem.
it's not my tone. I have been using archlinux since 2006 and that's longer than half the current developers. some of the old devs I knew outside archlinux. I promise it's not my tone.
They didn't over look it. the new developers were recruited terribly hastily when the old ones moved on. I know who is good and who isn't.
I'll give you an example. I file a bug report once about the cron job in the squid package. instead of fixing it, they just moved the package to aur. That's an ugly side of their personalities. back when JGC and other developers were very active, the distribution was much healthier.
The first sign of losing the KISS philosophy was introducing optdepends and using that as an excuse for shipping packages with broken dependencies.
I am just happy they decided to pick up systemd. that was a good step.
