The above piece was broken, so I applied manually. Was your patch 
against master?

  I always use my own copy of the repository where I apply my new
patches to.

  The difference is the non-applied patches to master, that change a
two-fonts macro to a single-font macro for a single argument.

  In this case in the man3/strfromd.3, ".B f" (master has ".BR f").

  So my "git pull" sometimes causes a merge conflict, which is easy for
me to correct.

Please don't. When I've rejected particular changes (as below),
for reasons that I already explained (several times), then basing
your patches on private repo that still has those changes will
just cause breakage and wasted time for me. Please base patches
off a pristine master.

Thanks,

Michael

  I do not support bad, wrong decisions.

  I do not support misuse.

  Your "trouble" is a direct consequence of your decisions.

  I have already answered your "explanations".

There are lots of consequences of any given action.  Many of the

to realize that the "obvious" action taken had so many bad side
effects.

So, at first I was giving you the benefit of the doubt, presuming that
you were not deliberately sending me patches that might break because
they included dependencies on changes that I had explicitly rejected
(several times) in the past. You've now made it clear that it was
deliberate.

A few of your patches have helpful clean-ups, but the bother of
dealing with such nonsense[1] just isn't worth it. Please don't waste
time by sending me any further patches; they will be ignored.

Thanks,

Michael

  I do not propagate (pass on) wrongdoings, obstruction of truth,
lies, mistakes, when I am aware of them.

  What does your "job" description say about resolving merge conflicts?

  Where is your "job" description available?

  "For what one has forbidden so far as a matter of principle
has always been --- truth alone.".  These words are valid for
the history of humankind as well as for Nietzsche's family.
