Somebody in the thread at some point said:

| Taking someone elses build system after you already have one is just

Wah I never saw this effect before.  I think there must be words after
"Taking someone elses build system" but my brain refuses to process it,
it shows black and yellow stripes in that region with a message "DANGER
your brain will explode from the madness if you read this".

| Source rpm stink. debian source packages more. (as i said earlier. Every
| build system sucks)

SRPMs are great and I am sure Debian source packages the same.  If you
actually have to ship binaries for GPL code, SRPM that guarantees to
capture all sources and build scripts in one file is a beautiful sight.
