The fact is that Rafaël immediately faulted the commit, and that Sébastien
followed suit and only retracted into asking latter. And Rafaël is still
arguing that the commit is wrong.

In my personal opinion and considering VDD, this is hypocritical.

And as I *also* mentioned back at VDD, I do not presume what people know
and do not know. Rather I expect that people who do not know will either
ignore it, or ask for clarifications. Again, I agreed to provide infos if I
could *and* I were *asked*, not if people tell me to revert my commits.

This is accusations on intent, and on top of that it is false. I did
provide clarifications once asked for.

> But don't complain about people considering your attitude unfriendly.

Everybody in this thread has had an unfriendly attitude, except for the
commit bot.

Yes indeed, you implicitly moved onto the pthread problem from the
pkg-config problem. But that's not what it read like.
