There we go again. Making proclamations without any justification or
explanation.

Maybe there is a language barrier between us, but I wrote the initial
bpftool code, so I don't see how you (who authored one patch) can say
what it was or is. Do you mean to say what you intend to make it?

bpftool was intended to be a CLI to BPF _kernel_ interface. libbpf was
just the library that we all agreed to use moving forward for ELF
loading.

I'm not going to argue with you again. You kept bad mouthing iproute2
and then your only argument was the reviews sometimes take longer than
24 hours. Which I'm sure you have a lot of experience with:

iproute2$ git log --author=Starov --oneline
4bfe68253670 iptnl: add support for collect_md flag in IPv4 and IPv6 tunnels

iproute2$ git log --author=fb.com --oneline
3da6d055d93f bpf: add btf func and func_proto kind support
7a04dd84a7f9 bpf: check map symbol type properly with newer llvm compiler
73451259daaa tc: fix ipv6 filter selector attribute for some prefix lengths
0b4ea60b5a48 bpf: Add support for IFLA_XDP_PROG_ID
4bfe68253670 iptnl: add support for collect_md flag in IPv4 and IPv6 tunnels
414aeec90f82 ss: Add tcp_info fields data_segs_in/out
409998c5a4eb iproute: ip-gue/ip-fou manpages

Upstreaming bpftool was a big mistake, but we live and we learn.
