Obviously the Debian Developers have much freedom how to act. At least if it is about packaging and bug report processing. As for Debian policy, in this case it is probably written in https://www.debian.org/Bugs/Developer#tags which says: "wontfix This bug won't be fixed. Possibly because this is a choice between two arbitrary ways of doing things and the maintainer and submitter prefer different ways of doing things, possibly because changing the behaviour will cause other, worse, problems for others, or possibly for other reasons." If i wondered about such a tag without explanation and felt affected by the bug, then i'd mail to the bug report asking for an explanation. > I was just reading a bug report that seemed valid Mind to share its number ?
