In our email exchange of late October, I agreed that the behavior of tar
had changed, but indicated that the change was apparently intentional
and thus tools like ark that use tar must be updated to account for the
change. I asked you if you had filed a bug against the ark package and
you said in email of 31 October:
> I already filed a bug against ark, but did not get any response.
There's nothing unusual about bug reports not getting an immediate
response, so I gave this no more thought. However, I cannot today find
any evidence that you actually filed such a bug in the Debian bug
tracking system about this issue. Did you file it somewhere else?

I'm sorry you don't appreciate the time I put into investigating your
problem and responding to your emails. I have no responsibility to fix
bugs in software like ark that I don't even use, and calling me names
certainly doesn't make me care more about your problem.
