Please post to the list rather than privately.  I took the liberty of posting this response to the list (hope you don't mind).

Usually I send my replies to the recipient address and add the list to the CC field. But no problem, I will send them to the list only.

Ah, I didn't look closely, and thought you'd only responded to me.

Anyway - I just assumed this list used the style common to Debian lists: Only post to list, except if cc'ing is explicitly requested (either in mail body or using Mail-Followup-To).

And even if this list does not following that style, I generally hint that I do not want replies by setting Reply-To: to the list.


Plus and tilde are both modern - but where tilde means "just below" then plus means "just above.

Yes, I know and...

So what I recommend for this specific case - and which is not too late - is to add a comment at the place(s) where you added that plus about then switching from the "correct" plus the the more elegant tilde.

...agree, so I will replace the plus with the "~" tilde for the next releases.

My recommendation goes a bit further than you keeping it in mind for next upload: I recommend to add an actual comment, both in case it is not you but some other team member doing that next upgrade, and also for inspiration to others looking at your package for inspiration.

..but if you feel that I am nitpicking then simply do not respond to this email, and I shall not bother you any further on this one. :-)
