we do mention Judd in our package. probably when pacman3 will hit your
repos, you'll remove our names from the package (by makepkg)

so who is who remove acknowledgements?

i see your point but see, removing acknowledgements is done by your
makepkg in every Arch package..

actually we're who contribute (to pacman) and you're who fork (ie.
libfetch) so we can't be the man who does not recognize other's

while really trying to be civil - if i were you i would just leave this
thread as is and finally would do some real work
