Dear VLC developers,

Somehow I managed to piss of courmisch for the n-th time. It is not 
intentionally. What do I do wrong here?

Don't get me wrong. I don't mind being told being wrong, but this time I 
think courmisch response is out of proportion. The VLC team always 
judged people/commits on technical grounds not on personal merits.

Please share me your opinions on this matter.

The commit is made because the build fails on srtp when a system doesn't 
have libgcrypt installed (or doesn't need it). My initial comment was 
wrong, which courmisch rightfully replied. However that doesn't fix the 
broken compile. See attached buildlog (file srtp.txt) which is why I 
think this commit should be done. Or if someone knows a better solution 
to solve this in another way, then please let me know.

That is not the issue here. We have a technical difference of opinion, 
why do you keep making differences so personal?

Why do you think so low of yourself? I do not despise you.

Kind greetings,
