Re: [Evolution] open letter to Ximian Evo team: RH 6.2 blues

Therefor we cannot open up the boxes to add a new drive or we void the

That's exactly the point I was making to our Ximian friends. It's not as
if there is a deep-seated software configuration problem that needs a
week to solve. Not solving the disk space problem says something about
priorities, and I hope they reconsider them so that they can both
attract customers and benefit from their willingness to test their new
creations, and eventually to pay for service.

The last time I built from CVS I spent the best part of an evening
getting everything to work out, because of missing libraries etc. I
succeeded, but then I found that the CVS version was behind the snapshot
I was fighting with, and now I have no time to redo the experiment. As I
said in my previous message, the very small Mac Eudora team was able to
keep releasing packaged betas that worked on a wide variety of MacOS
versions and hardware configurations, so the problem of maintaining a
good relationship with early access users is solvable.
