Is this the way things should go?
Melchior is not the only person who find the current situation unacceptable.

Maybe I should make a package with a file included that says :
"Kill all 'em Niggers" and get it put up on the FlightGear site.

I say pull the package in question. If the author wants to distribute it on 
his own site then that is fine with me but as it stands it looks like we 
endorse what is in that package.
I'd rather upset one contributor than piss off the whole FG community.
