It's fascinating to watch how emotional the process of software
creation can be. I wrote so because I was angry. And I was angry
because your decision potentially means a delay of weeks (months?)
before a working amd-64 debian is available. And the tone of your
e-mail didn't sound very much conciliatory, but maybe that's just a
legitimate pressure that one group wants to exert over
another. Anyway, I'm glad to hear that the new version of dpkg you
announced is not definitive.
