I'm not really sure this is comparable. I fully support the use of post_install/post_upgrade in this situation. On top of the fact that as opposed to e.g. xscreensaver :D we are not advertising this as the default version for users to install (it is explicitly a VCS development package). All I'm saying is I don't feel comfortable telling users they are not allowed to use it *at all*, because upstream asked us to forbid its packaging *period*. Anything we can do to ensure that users are alerted to the precise relationship this code has to upstream and the support thereof, can only be a good thing. This is rather different from censoring its existence. -- Eli Schwartz Bug Wrangler and Trusted User
