You are so naive and I couldn't stop laughing.

Thank you for letting me know and sorry for the bad mood I released here
in response to this. Apologies to everyone. I was fooled. Today is not
my day so I was easy to trigger. Sorry for the noise.

Thank you for 'coming to my defense' by standing up for good
communication on Gentoo's channels.
I regret jumping to conclusions and apologize for generalzing from a
single user (real or not) to the community that I owe so much.

Next time, I'll refrain from replying if I feel atacked.
Thank you for your understanding.


Kind regards,

Marcel

So the day has come when a script has fooled me. Thanks for clarification.

Cuckoo is a spam bot. The bot assumes the first response will be a user
pointing out that the link is dangerous. So the bot's response is to
respond back automatically with an aggressive denial in the hopes that
more users will continue to click the spam link.

I would appreciate it If you'd refrain from sending such messages to
mailing list, either go into details when you disagree with people or
don't reply at all. Those low level flexing is not welcome here.

Marcel,

I think you're replying to a spam bot. That doesn't seem to be a real
person -- it's just grabbing a bunch of technical jargon and linking to
an adult video website.

Just for everyone else: My web browser is not supported by the platform
this presentation was through. So I have no idea of its content and
assumed this list is not bothering people with jokes.
I stand by my opionion that GNU Guix is worth considering for some folks
that enjoy Gentoo and now I have a another argument to have a look:
In my experience, the GNU Guix community is very friendly and I doubt
they'd alienate potential contributors that voluntarily subscribe to
their mailing list by insults and public ridicule.

Best,
Marcel

In case any is interested in trying it out:
I am successfully using Guix under Gentoo via this overlay:

IMHO, it is a great package manager, especially when being concerned
about (bit-wise) reproducibility, 'slotting' various versions and fast
movement with low risk (reversible upgrades).

The one feature I miss compared to portage is the configuration via USE
flags: One could patch Guix package definitions to add compile to flags
etc, but you can't simply let the package manager resolve the
dependencies for you.


Cheers,

Marcel
