I guess Tshepang meant "kind" = "hand holding".
The burden of learning such basics lies with the contributor. Lack of
such due diligence is not so welcomed. Although Sandro made a very
terse explanation from a point of view of normal life, I consider his
effort to be very informative one. I consider this to be "kind" but

Maybe Sandro did not need some "sarcasm" in his reply but I fully
understand his feeling and I support him ... I think here is a typical
gap of expectation around Debian. In order to reduce this kind of
tension, I recently added few reminders in mant-guide as "Social
dynamics of Debian".
Friendly cooperation is the driving force.
* Your contribution should not overstrain others.
* Your contribution is valuable only when others appreciate it.
Debian is not your school where you get automatic attention of teachers.
* You should be able to learn many things by yourself.
* Attention from other volunteers is a very scarce resource.
