@spacekookie i wouldn't say that is elitism alone because it's, like, on purpose and for security reasons. it becomes elitism when arch users feel superior over ubuntu users and shit like that
@jalcine @CobaltVelvet Seconded. The only acceptable phrasing would have been "Sorry that we can't make this work for everybody at the moment, but we'd be stoked to incorporate contributions that bring us closer to this goal!"
But it does not, so @spacekookie s analysis that this is exclusionary and elitist is very much accurate.
@CobaltVelvet @tethre @jalcine @spacekookie fwiw the dev made aurman mostly for themselves and then got overwhelmed with requests by people who kept filing issues that had nothing to do with aurman whatsoever, so that rant is mostly coming out of a place of frustration and not malice
that doesn't really absolve the elitist tone though, there are better ways to say "please read the faq before filing an issue"
@CobaltVelvet yaourt is the worst tbh, it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that yaourt is the cause of most broken systems, aside from octopi (which regularly performs partial upgrades and leaves your system in a broken state)
i used to use packer before it was renamed to packer-aur; that was basically a bash script to clean build packages and nothing else. no fluff
