Can we please stick with discussing the technical details of this issue
instead of attacking eachother?

There's clearly a bug here, but even after reading this bug log, I've
had to do research on my own to determine what that issue is.

If the libroar2 maintainers which to keep decnet support, then someone
should probably figure out how to circumvent waiting for the DECnet to
settle when it isn't actually configured, and propose a patch to do

Even just checking for the existence of dnet-common or similar would
probably be enough.
