Yes, to discuss is the goal of this thread. I gave only an answer from my point of view, why I don’t want to add it to the installation image.
I never said, that my opinion is the only one and I never said, that it is decided in this way.
The discussion is still open for everyone.
Yes, I understand, that the package is useful for your needs. And I did not say, that you should not use it. And if I give the advice, not to use it, than I give also a short explanation, why you should not use it.
I have just pointed out, that the package is not in the official repositories, which makes it harder to include into the official installation image. And I don’t see any benefits by including it. And also that Lubuntu should aim to be leightweight, also with the number of included packages.
The discussion was not censored. I did not (and cannot) delete and I did not request to delete something. And if everyone has the same point of view, the discussion is easier, but less interesting.
I know, it is very hard to change the opinion of a person. But the forum is open, also other people can read it, can think about the arguments.
And I often see things in this and also other forums (things like the [ab]use of
sudo, wrong use of
chmod, et cetera), where I think, it is necessary and also worth to intervene. To clearly say “No, don’t do it” and to explain why it is wrong or at least, how they should do it.
And I don’t mind to correct also people, who have years of “experience”, written several 10’000 posts in a forum. The “experienced” users are often the worst ones, because they are often not ready or able to learn new things (“I never had problems”, “It always worked like this”).
In this case, I don’t write for the “experienced” users, but for all the beginners and interested people. For all, which are willing to learn or to think twice about a problem.
And please: Never take something personally. I don’t know you as a person, I can see only what you are writing. And English is not my native language, I have to translate everything and this makes it also harder to understand and “translate” the hidden meanings of a message.
