Re: [Evolution] go-gnome installer

Hehe..I agree here as well. I don't really care much for the installer
mechanism, perhaps a wrapped perl script which parses an XML
document that is downloaded using perl http libs?

Which one of you monkeys was on the pipe long enough to come

GNOME uses to install?

You realize that this is quite possibly the worst install
mechanism, not only from a security perspective but from an
end-user ease-of-use/familiarity perspective, of any program
you can currently obtain.

You used to install irc this way, by piping telnet into a shell.
