Reindl now let me tell you about my day..

I had ping Toshio regarding FPC might want to update their socket 
section to include xinetd ( since maintainers had shown concern both 
regarding to packaging this and what was the general policy with regards 
to converted xinetd socket/services ) which he of course brought up on 
their next meeting which was today...

When I had time to look at irc from $dayjob I noticed that I had been 
ping and what awaits me was this...

" abadger1999: He's on what could only be usefully termed a crusade.
It's actually somewhat damaging, but as long as nobody thinks that 
they're mandated to pay attention to him, it shouldn't hurt anything in 
the long run."

So apparently me converting xinetd and packages that provide xinetd 
related files ( 33 packages including xinetd itself which produced 50+ 
unit files ) puts me on a somekind of crusade against xinetd and nobody 
should be paying attention to my work ( that was a whole ( last ) 
weekend I spent working on and off it ).

Understandable Jason might have reach that conclusion if I had proposed 
the removal of xinetd itself but I have never made such an proposal.

So Reindl by all means continue drag your rants into $next_releases it 
does not get any worse than this for people that what to improve your 
unfortunate experience and prevent others from experiencing it.

By the way for those of you that were thinking about joining the 
migration process and lending a hand I strongly recommend against it 
unless you got the stomach for it.

Talk about hostile work environment you ungrateful people.

Thanks for making my day ( yet again ).
