I unsubscribed from the ML so I'm not 100 % sure that this message
will nest itself under Xyne's reply[1].  I would appear to be a
polarizing force based on the votes; I wouldn't be comfortable joining
the TU group given the more or less 50/50 split reflected in the data.
 To my supporters, I'd like to reiterate a salient point from what I
posted yesterday[2]: functionally, nothing will change.  I will
continue to maintain my repo, I will continue to maintain my PKGBUILDs
in the AUR, and people will continue to use my stuff despite Dave's

Here are some other data for consideration, as of 24-Mar-2013:
*Profile-sync-daemon is installed by just under 5 % of Arch users
running pkgstats[3].
*Profile-sync-daemon v5.31-1 has been downloaded by just under 1,400
Debian/Mint/Ubuntu users[4].
*Profile-sync-daemon will, at some point, be included in the Fedora repos[5].
*Profile-sync-daemon has ebuilds maintained by developers for both
Gentoo and Exherbo[6].

Thanks again to my supporters.
