Most obscure e-mail of the year (so far)

I have the vague feeling that somehow this is out of my field of responsibilities.

  1. This is might be an offer to bump this ebuild for some donation. So how much do you want for this? ;-)

  2. Can't be, the ebuild is up to date and even stable...

  3. I read this and immediately thought back to someone I used to work with; they were involved with camera-oriented applications, and his name was Fernando.

    It's safe to say the coincidences are creeping me out a little.

  4. Notice that he added "Lord" to your name :D had to laugh :-)

  5. It's really simple to understand. He's asking how much that application costs, and requesting a 'free' 'demo version' of it as well as its documentation. He just doesn't know it actually is Free/Libre Open Source Software. That's pretty uncommon for Computer Aided Manufacturing software.
