Re: Bug#758116: Allow to select Blends selection during installation - just "DE", "Web server", "Mail server" is NOT enough

I'm sorry, but the thread so far do not make me believe you are not
really want to understand what I mean, but instead look for a way to
push your view and any explanation I come up with would be brushed away.

I believe it is best for me to not get involved in d-i.  To me, based on
the current and earlier email and IRC exchanges, d-i development seem
like a toxic environment and I believe my effort is better spent
elsewhere.  Thus I do not see the point of spending the time to try to
explain why and how my view is fundamentally different from yours, as I
am conviced the effort will be wasted.  It make me sad, but I just do
not have the energy to try to do something about it.

I was hoping to work on hw-detect and isenkram integration, but have not
been able to muster the motivation to do it so far.  I will probably
limit myself to adding an udeb for isenkram and leave the d-i part to
others, even if it probably mean automatic firmware setup will not
become part of the official installer.

I suspect the cause is just a question of incompatible personalities
involved, and either that the culture was different back when we ran the
d-i project at the start or that I changed so much the culture is no
longer friendly to me.

Happy hacking
