Hi Chris don't worry about your questions, it isn't a offense. :)

I was one of the full-time Parabola devs there, mainly i've been
maintaining around 90% packages in libre repo [0] and 100% in kernels
[1] and nonprism repos [2][3] for x86_64 and i686 only, except the
kernels packages that were maintained by me for all architectures
supported by Parabola (x86_64, i686 and armv7h).

However a couple days ago, i've posted an email in Parabola's dev lists
about some doubts related to Parabola'd donations [4]

For constants multiple personal attacks (ad hominem), but no substance
[5], causing an unnecessary division and this on going flamewar over
something that should have been simple, i've decided to say goodbye to
Parabola [6]

Currently, i'm dedicating my life to my family and friends than ever
before, however i would at least continuing maintaining some of my
kernels such as linux-libre and linux-libre-lts in Arch as TU in
[community] for the benefit of Arch the same as other Arch-based distros.
