It's not rude at all.

 1. I don't know.
 2. I don't care.
 3. Sorry I'm not any help with that.

My post was not to solicit inclusion of
anything particular from hexrgb.el.

I pointed out that (1) `hexrgb-hsv-to-rgb'
was provided (to Emacs) _long ago_, (2) I
agree that such a function is useful for
Emacs (still), and (3) code for it is in
hexrgb.el, for use as is or as food for
thought.

Wrt #2, I seconded the second person who
said that such a function could be useful.

If anyone is interested in finding what
else might be of interest for Emacs in
hexrgb.el, they are _welcome_ to take a
look.  The file isn't large, the source
code is accessible and clear, I've signed
FSF papers, and I give my permission if
any of hexrgb.el is to be used.

That's all.

I'm not interested in getting into a
discussion or arguments about what might
or might not be useful from hexrgb.el
for Emacs.  It's there - _FYI_.

Look inside it or don't; I really don't
care.  Should I?  Is it rude not to care,
and to let you know straightforwardly
that I don't?

Is it hard, for any who really want to
know, to look inside the file and decide
for themselves?  I don't have an opinion
about what they might want.

I was asked for "my view", and the answer
is that I don't have a view about what
else might be of interest to Emacs.  The
last time I looked inside the file was
likely 2018 - the last time I updated it.
(Naturally, if someone has a technical
question then I'll take a look and try to
answer it.)

What might reasonably be considered rude
is turning the discussion into an ad
hominem attack by calling me rude.  But
that's your specialty (weakness).

My mails about this, including the one
where I said I don't know and don't care,
have been intended to help.  If you want
to find out what might be of interest to
you in hexrgb.el then peek inside it.
I don't make any claim that anything in
there is worth your peeking.  I really
don't care whether you do.

Please don't bother to try to find some
phrase in this mail to quote alone, out
of context, and continue your ad hominem
nonsense.  No one needs that.  Thx.

If you have something technical to say
to me about (color|hexrgb)-hsv-to-rgb or
hexrgb.el, then that's welcome.
