I decided to send out this mail because I felt that it was the right thing
to do, given the problems enlightened by the Smeegol release, because those
issues appeared to me as worrying for the packaging of the MeeGo software. I
tried to make it clear that I was bringing those issues up on my sole name
and not as a representative of anything (although I reckon that I might have
failed at that).
Now Steve's mail and yours both put some clearer light on the issue and make
me understand the various implications better: thank go to both of you for
But now said mail is out. The responsability of its sending and the
implications thereof are on my shoulders. Furthermore, I acknowledge that
1) I should have discussed its content, aim and wording beforehand,
2) asking for permission when a permission grant is useless is not the
thing to do.
Now how do I / do we proceed ?
Does anyone (team or person) need a wider apology than this one ? Is a
coordinated answer from Debian needed to Ibrahim's mail needed/wanted ? I
can prepare it and make sure it gets proofread first (Steve already agreed
to do that, but it could be done more publicly).
And for the packaging: it basically stopped because I fell out of time. But
what would happen if a "libmeegotouch" package lands in NEW ?
