I can see there are best intension with the previous E-mail,
but I can't see why it was posted.
The thing I would like to see is that we allow people to learn.
That means give them room/space to do something. They can read/fetch
sources and rebuild. If they build something that doesn't work,
they will ask why and at some point they will ask the ML why it doesn't
That is the point where we _can help_ learning.
Trying to help sooner is wrong.
My request is to help when actual help is asked.
