Really, I can do without veiled threats. If you are going to ban me or whatever,
go ahead and do it.
I have brought some constructive criticisms of this project with the hope of
starting a discussion around fixing/improving certain issues. Instead I am met
with brick wall attitude and threats of being pushed off the mailing list.
My suggestion has merit: Debian is no niche operating system and "apt-get" is no
niche package manager. To look to them for "how it should be done" or
"one way to do it" is not a mistake in my opinion. However I am met with this

distros using it?
