Incorrect, and I don't see what an OSS geek is supposed to be.

I/We don't have a consumer relation with what you call consumers. Those

That is not that I'm against decent release building, but there is a
tradeoff here, and one that is aggrevated due to use of several installer
and hierarchy conventions.
