this is not a binNMU (which is irrelevant here), nor a NMU (even though lintian warned it was), nor my packages are in lowNMU list (so, again, irrelevant), it is indeed maintained in the DPMT, which has a set of rules called policy. are you asserting that it's perfectly fine to ignore the policy which should bind our work in this team? > 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. what? so $random_developer arrives, changes the packages, does mistakes, uploads nonetheless, I should happily fix them, and then let them know what was wrong? so why shouldnt that very same $random_developer get in touch with the maintainer who has done the work so far? > Complaining about the maintainer vs uploader > policy does not improve the package in question. nor is uploading a package just for their own interest and then let the maintainer fix the mistakes done.

I dont think you can assert what others' intentions are (even if good faith *can* be assumed), still shielding behind the "team maintenance" to do whatever one pleases is WRONG! stop being apologetic for such behavior. -- Sandro Tosi (aka morph, morpheus, matrixhasu) My website: http://matrixhasu.altervista.org/ Me at Debian: http://wiki.debian.org/SandroTosi
