From now on I will stay away whenever my intended help involves CDBS (for packages not already using it), as that is essentially what you tell me to do.


I am not *telling* you what to do. At least this is not my intention and I'd like to apologize if my previous mails left you with this impression.

I am *asking* you to keep CDBS out of the discussion if the issue at hand is completely unrelated to it. Why do you insist on suggesting people to convert their previous work to your preferred packaging style, even if the issue at hand can be perfectly solved with the currently chosen style?

I did *not* at this time suggest others to convert to CDBS - I offered to do it myself. Instead, I did 2 things: a) pointed out a problem, and b) offered to solve it.

I did not offer to massage the huge patch, as I dislike that approach. And since my proposed alternate solution involved CDBS, I warned about this.

At other times I have suggested people to use CDBS for their packaging, as part of offering to work together with them on "their" packages.


If CDBS is outlawed in this team, then let's get it over with, instead of harrassing me about it.


Kind regards,

 - Jonas
