...actually, in this case, only pdp2gem was changed, so gem2pdp is just 
as broken as it was...and as I mentioned in the last email, even this 
was probably fixed in my last commit...

...by "MACS" I assume you mean laptop/powerbook?  Darwin is open 
source, aqua ain't, so what?  You paid for your hardware right?

...Really, this is just farcical that you imagine that all changes 
checked in are to be tested so widely...that's quite against the idea 
of collaboration as I see it...and I think your way off the mark in 
assuming what I respect, or am for that matter...?

...oh, I did send you the code, and I assumed that you had looked at it 
when you gave IOhannes the ok (when you were recently in graz) to give 
me cvs access...but I guess that assumption was way wrong, oh well...

> i don't even know if i can call it open-source....

...uh, why not?  It's source code out in the open, and not even using 
any osx specific code? I certainly hope you aren't using any closed 
source graphics drivers, that'd be thorny...

...I think you should think more before attacking people who ARE trying 
to collaborate...and I think my track record is about as "open-source" 
as it gets...
