I do not agree. I think that the LyX installer is an important part of the LyX project. Do you know of any other software that separates the binary from the installer? The only thing I can think of is something like the separation of CTAN and e.g. TeX Live, but in my opinion that is different. > Then it is > definitely no LyX thing and we can end this fruitless debate. It is frustrating, it is a lot of time on everyone's side, but trying to work through a conflict so that we can stay together and produce the best possible LyX for the user is not fruitless in my opinion. I think we must continue to try. Even though both sides seem very far apart right now, I do not think we should give up. As racoon, proposed, I think we just need to figure out the root issues to focus on. In the end, I think this entire issue could be resolved by deciding on one question: would a dialog be confusing to the average user? I still think we can make progress on this. If you think there are more issues than this one, let's discuss them one by one. Perhaps we could start a separate email thread to keep the discussions organized. Regards, Scott
