Re: setup.exe is too small
Since you are often the voice for us lurkers and occasional patch
contributors, thank you, Christopher, for a well put and well reasoned
response that sums up the whole thread.
I can't agree. Take it in context with what was written. The "fix it
yourself" response was in response to a somewhat rude request that a
problem be fixed. It had words like "For the love of open source"
"what is the hold up?" and "I'm dying here".
I don't think newbie should necessarily mean clueless and demanding
but that is how the original post came across to me.
Remember, we are giving you gifts. Cygwin is a gift. The response to a
gift is "Thank you" not "Yeah, yeah. Now I want more, when's it
We're human, too. When someone seems demanding after having been given
a gift it tends to rub us the wrong way.
