I see nothing wrong with Goirand's upload. I believe Sandro Tosi is
still using the pre-binNMU, pre-NMU, pre-LowNMU, pre-Team packaging
maintenance mentality which is not the commonly accepted behaviour and
mentality in Debian anymore. Sando, if you don't like something in
particular about a particular upload you should fix those points and
re-upload and e.g. send an email with a diff to the last uploader with
code review and comments. Complaining about the maintainer vs uploader
policy does not improve the package in question. As all uploads - good
and bad - are always done with only best intentions in mind, do take
that into account. Nobody is trying to attack you, your packages, or
somehow sabotage Debian.
