    Like many frustrated programmers who work with C code, he has
inadvertently created a serious bug by omitting a semicolon.  Well,
there are some formatting issues as well, but those aren't as
critical.  Here, I'll clean up the original:

  * F*cking tired with these broken package orphaned.


  * F*cking tired of this broken package; orphaned.

Ah, what a difference a couple of characters make.

Give the guy a break, Daniel.  As I understand it, English isn't his
native tongue.
