Being a fierce proponent of single quotes myself, your message gave me
the impression that those changes were sane and that you were just
pissed by the lack of communication.

Now that I noticed one of my packages was affected too:
- I am outraged by the lack of communication! :D
- I am appalled by how moronic the script was.

On liboping's PKGBUILD:
> -pkgdesc='C library to generate ICMP echo requests, better known as "ping packets"'
> +pkgdesc='Ping packets'

I mean, seriously...
