It was just a simple announcement that i would start deleting -dev stuff 
and inform the users to start switching to gnome-unstable repo instead.

I believe there is a miss-communication between me and you. Every time i 
send you my feedback regarding your packaging/actions, you get all 
personal, like i have something against you.

Stop doing it. I just want what is best for our users and for arch in
