Hot on the tail of bug 100584 comes Mathematica- This package will 
bring out the fucking wood in any maths nerd. 
Which dev is going to take RMS's flaccid prick out of their arse and commit

Dear Daniel,

Looking at your past few bugs[1], it's very apparent that your forté is
mathematics, and not English.  In fact, your English has been so poor lately, it
would be enough to make sailors blush.

I might remind you, that this whole organisation, is run by volunteers, who do
not have to, nor wish to, take your constant abuse.  Developers have been
suspended for less... and you're headded for banishment from the community... as
we're simply not interested in your petty antics.  We are not your slaves, and
we do have Real Life to get on with, thus Gentoo often plays second fiddle to
our work/university study/etc.

I'd suggest, either sticking to a language you know, and getting someone to
translate to proper English... or perhaps learn some proper English yourself.

Now, regarding your ebuilds... I take it Mathematica is a binary-only package? 
In which case, it belongs in /opt/mathematica... not /usr.  So I'd also suggest
you have a closer read of the fine developer manual[2].  Incidentally, that same
manual also mentions etequitte guidelines... which are a strongly recommended
read too.

In the meantime, I'll mark your ebuild obsolete, as it is broken.  When you have
fixed your ebuild, you may attach it here, accompanied by a well-constructed
comment.  Otherwise, feel free to send your abuse to /dev/null -- I don't want
to hear it... and nor does anybody else.

1. See bug numbers: #42610 #97439, #99502, #100577, #100584, #100640
2. especially ...
it's just as applicable to users as it is to devs.

Marking ebuild as obsolete, as promised.
Comment 8 Ciaran McCreesh 2005-08-18 15:57:09 UTC
Please fix the following and reopen:

* Use versionator rather than manual bash substitution.
* DEPEND but no RDEPEND upon x11? If this is really correct, include a comment
explaining why.
* ${WORKDIR}, ${FILESDIR}, ${D} need quoting.
* You need either a nofetch explanation telling the user where to find the
SRC_URI components or a full SRC_URI.
* Move the tar things to src_unpack, and either fix your tar invokation or use

I've cleaned up this fucking ebuild. Comments from COMPETENT devs (not whiny 
cocksuckers) welcome. Thanks.

What did I say about installing binary stuff in /usr?

/opt is where it belongs.

Also, clean up your language, you've been told before.

Whoopsie, that didn't belong here?!
Comment 17 Daniel Hancock 2005-08-26 17:38:31 UTC
Fuck sakes! Stuart Longland, did you even read the fucking ebuild? What is  
going into /usr/bin? The same fucking stuff that the binary OpenOffice package  
puts in /usr/bin - wrapper scripts! All the damn binaries are in /opt/${PN}  
I tell ya, finding a competent Gentoo dev is harder than a priest in a 
playground. Stuart stick to what you fucking know - misplaced diffs and 
erroneous spelling (what the fuck is "etequitte" - a French whore perhaps?) At 
least Ciaran McCreesh provided competent advice! 
Comment 18 Stuart Longland (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-08-26 18:19:58 UTC
Why not just set PATH?  No wrapper scripts needed. :-)

In any case, I don't like your attitude.  This will be my last comment on this
issue.  Clearly you don't know how to act in a professional manner, and
therefore I'm no longer interested in dealing with you.

Good luck getting that ebuild pushed through with that attitude, as I'm not alone.
