Well, I said how it is. I don't see anything in it that indicates I am
so upset and angry that I need to do these things. I did however loose
hours of work time, but that's life.

This is what I am doing with this as well, in addition to the bug
reports. But as this is widespread to at least 4-6 system packages, I
brought it up here as well to ensure this is not something I have to
fight against in overlays and time wastes continuously in the future.
Oh and net-tools has not distributed anything in .tar.lzma, so this has
nothing to do with following upstream in any shape or form in this case.
