What are you referring to? Where am I not cooperating?

The things I am actively boycotting are
- acls, because they prevent cooperation
- EPEL, because I consider it harmful to Fedora.
- the fedora sponsorship model, because it has regressed into a bad
joke.

Once again:

1. Upstream has abandoned the *.pc's. 
=> They decided to change their programmmer's infrastructure.

2. The patch Chris wants me to add is Debian's *.pc's.
=> They are a vendor specific and proprietary approach
=> They are designed in a way, they prevent parallel installation of a
potential OSG1 and OSG2 package.

3. At the very moment I activate the *.pc's I carry around for months,
will not help Chris. They are designed to support parallel installation
of OSG1 and OSG2 (openscenegraph-2.pc)

To me, Chris simply has not understood that OSG2 is completely
incompatible to OSG1. Having abandoned the *.pc's, and now being
confronted with competing implementations of *.pc are symptoms of this.
Also he doesn't want to understand that the packages he is maintaining
carry bugs which prevent them from being used without pkgconfig files.
