I'm three weeks behind on all my list mail and I'm not making a lot of
headway, so if you're wondering why I haven't been jumping into the
controversies du jour and stirring more up, that's why. Got my hands
full with the huge TurboGears list and its six or or so dependent 
projects. I pretty much look for messages that *aren't* list mail or
threads I've previously written to and read those, so if you need me
for something, the best way is to email directly.
Regarding the Makefile question, I did think both Thomas and Ben were
a little harsh initially. But when the querent turned nasty and
essentially said, "Fuck you Unix heads and all your children," I
thought, maybe Thomas and Ben
are better at recognizing those kind of people than I am.
As far as opening the list archives, that brings up issues of querent
privacy, publishability, copyright, etc, for material we wouldn't
publish. The archives don't have *better* answers than the zine coz
we put the best stuff in the zine. And if people want to see what
kind of flakes we put up with, well, there's a representative sample
of that in the zine too.
 I know dependent is for the thing that depends rather than the
thing that's depended on, but is there an adjective for going the
other way? Saying "depended-on projects" would be more correct but
unwieldly. I suppose I could say "dependencies" but that loses a bit
of precision as to what kind of thing it is.
