I can't figure out of this is sarcasm or stupity. I'll give
the benefit of doubt, and assume this was a misdirected attempt at
sarcasm. You really don't take security seriously, do you?
What was being attempted here is a dioalog on how one handles
security risks in packages that depend on a binaty copy of themselves
to build; and frankly, I see hibes and sarcasm as having no place
Of course, you may be entirely sincere, and merely exhibiting
extremely poor judgement in calling gnats build essential, in which
case please accept my apology, and my commiserations, for this must
be a really tough profession for you.
