Um... he's posted the rest of that sentence at least twice, and "out of
non-free" is not equivalent to "in main".

Other possibilities are "into contrib" and "not distributed at all".

Since he explicitly indicated "not contributed at all", and since he's
posted the complete sentence multiple times, it's really strange that
you're claiming otherwise.

Of course not.  Apologies are for things you're sorry about.

If you're not sorry about reversing his meaning, you shouldn't apologize.

Um... he's prickly, but in this case I think you should at least read the
complete sentence of his that you're referring to (the "out of non-free"
sentence) before claiming it's difficult to know if you've misunderstood
him.  Or if not the whole sentence, at least read the second line.

Though... he's convinced that you are intelligent enough to have read
the entire sentence before responding to it.  And, maybe he's right.


Raul, leading by awful example
