I don't know what "can't infuse your brain" means, but I'm happy to hear
you're happy with ebuilds.
Basically - I agree with your outlook - we should have better tools. By
all means competition is part of the process to get there!
I'll see when we can find a good time/place for the deb tutorial. I'd
really like to do that in the next few weeks. I'll see about reviving the
different-venue discussion in a separate thread.

I'm interested in the idea in general. I wonder how you could express
dependency facts that way. (That's a serious question.) I'd love to have
a separate discussion about this.
Even more amazing was the realization that God has Internet access. I
wonder if He has a full newsfeed?
