When is it apprioprate to e-mail the maintainer? To report him? I await
Perhaps there is something official on this, but experience proves that
bug reports should be just that, not attempts to achieve a timely
solution to a problem. That might be the result in some cases, but most
often it is not.
In your case you are disputing the dependencies of a package. AFAIK that
might easily involve misunderstanding.
If I were you I would build the package with the dependency that you
have in mind and see what happens.
General etiquette in my mind would involve never to cast a negative
light on anyone, since it solves nothing and merely sows discord.
