If I haven't said it before, let me say it now: HUGE appreciation for the amazing work distribution maintainers (like yourself) do.

I mean HUGE.

+over9000 to that post.

Thanks, maintainers!! \o/

>> mray:

“As a user I don't even want to need an "ambassador" in the first place. I may appreciate the work maintainers do in their role, but I don't like the role when it is the wall I crash into. Not having recent binaries, the right binary for my particular OS or having binaries at all is still pretty common.
As a user I see this as being dependent on even more people.”

You should really try Linux from scratch then :)
