No more going off on wild tangents like the package management. An amazing amount of work (and quite a bit of money) went into that and if we are really honest it probably was not as important as it was made out to be.

I am not sure. I can recreate them at will on my laptop. Sometime this weekend I am going to download an newer nightly and try it again. I have already opened two tickets a few weeks ago.

I was referring to WebPositve. I just have a lot of crashes with it. I had a reproducible WebPositive crash and I reported it. But it could not be independently verified. Turned out it was specific to a marginal laptop. I retired the laptop. Are your WebPositive crashed reproducible and independently verifiable? ...

A leader has to lay out a vision that's compelling enough for everyone else to say Yeah, I have my pet issue but I'll put that aside because what this guy is saying is what I really want to see. ...

François, What you have is an extraordinarily good system there. Commercial class. Good documentation. I imagine that hours of effort is behind this. The quality is where Haiku wants to end up.
