Please, don't personify things. There's no need for that and Scimmia didn't
do that when he closed your bug report.

Because your bug report is incorrect.

You should report this upstream.

We do patch and fix things that upstream doesn't or we need in order for
things to work. Even while we could in theory change our dolphin-emu package
it doesn't change the fact that your specific bug report is incorrect, because
we don't support AUR packages.

You're more than welcome to file this both upstream and again on our bug tracker,
but this time, you can make your case for dolphin-emu not having those files, *independent*
of your AUR package. If you want, you can even send a patch to the PKGBUILD/package doing
