Further bug reports will be filed.

History

#1 Updated by Andreas Schneider 7 months ago

Do you think that you motivate someone to help you using those words? If I get such bug reports on my Open Source projects I normally ignore them.

Most Open Source projects are developed in the spare time of those people. You're wasting their spare time. I'm sure there are Mac users out there who can write good and precise bug reports instead of insulting volunteers.

#2 Updated by qmr qmr 7 months ago

You seem to imply that being open source means it is therefore beyond criticism. That seems to be broken thinking.

How successful are these projects where you ignore your users?

instead of insulting volunteers.

I have insulted no one. When someone critiques a photo I have taken, I do not interpret it as a personal attack.

The Mac port does not seem to be taken seriously, as evidenced by the fact that the logo on the Install page is from Mac OSX Leopard which was released more than a decade ago.

I don't have a problem if you criticize something, but you're not doing that. This is in no way a useful to anyone.

I would suggest you read

and try again. Being polite and excellent to each other is what brings us forward, not this. I will not further comment this.

Let me be as useful as you:

"Mac is a pile of hot shit under Darktable"

Is that useful? Don't think so.

Please be more specific. Is it horse manure, bullshit or something completely different?
