It's no wonder why not many people contribute to glibc.
Really Ulrich, the way you respond to patch contributions (from people
donating their work and time to your project) is really disappointing.
Just the past two days you've done nothing but flame people to a crisp,
and who would want to contribute to a project where the maintainer
behaves that way?
None of your responses are ever constructive or helpful to the
contributor, instead they denigrate that person's work and put them
I've never once seen you say things like "please".
