They are not that stupid. And they didn't need me to find
out the things they did not like: extensions being created
and then deprecated, extensions that 'exist' on some web
page but are implemented nowhere, tutorials that start with
saying that everything has changed and they should be ignored,

At one time, pointing out that the Catholic church maybe had
made some mistakes was 'blasphemy' and you could end up on
the stake. You seem to have a similar definition of 'fud' -
any statement that does not glorify the excellence of LV2
is immediately classified as such. Nothing new really.

Which they already have. AFAIK it does all they need quite well.



A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
