Clearly not.

Because you did a poor job, and figured that you'd just bother a bunch 
of other people with a question you could easily figure out yourself.

No need to be sarcastic.  If you really did all these things, you would 
have answered your question in less than a minute.  Given that, you'll 
have to forgive me if I'm a little skeptical.

I wasn't being rude.  Finding the information you wanted was pretty 
trivial, even considering the fact that I already knew where it was. 
The fact that it was or wasn't your first post is irrelevant (I'm on 
quite a few mailing lists; I certainly don't care to remember who I have 
and haven't seen post to various lists already).  In fact, I'd be *more* 
forgiving to someone who was a regular positive contributor to the list 
if they made a mistake.  I don't know you, and you ask a question you 
could easily answer yourself, so my only initial impression is that 
you're a time-sink.

You could either a) realise you made a silly mistake, gracefully take 
the slap on the wrist, and move on, or b) flame and call even greater 
attention to your ignorance.  Oops, bad choice.

You're welcome.  I hope thunar-svn-plugin works out for you.
