    Given that all packages in this case are simply snapshots of a development trunk I don't think it's a real issue. Plus on a production system you have a package manager to take care of that.

    @ Everyone who criticized Micheal:

    Your accusations may be right, but still give some credit to him since he listened to the suggestions from the kernel regression related comments and I think he really tried his best this time.
    Even if this time it was not a real/big bug I'm sure it will be able to find some nasty ones in the future.
    Certainly, this is a step in the good direction.

    Keep it up, Micheal!

    Exactly. It counts Michael reported this what was or looked like a bug.

    SourceMage and CRUX are 2 other source based distros
