Well, if we advise users to compile their stuff on their own
something is broken. If we can not provide the latest upstream
version of a certain end user application because we are missing
some underlying libraries (for whatever reason) we IMHO failed
in supporting our users. The user does not care about the underlying
infrastructure but expects us to provide the application he needs.
Our job would be to care for the needed library - if needed by
patching it to become more stable. If this exceeds the timeframe
of a single developer the solution is called group maintenance.
