[aj@azure.humbug.org.au: Re: teamwork (was Re: #103302 ask permission blah blah)]



Grrr. Don't Cc me on posts to debian-* mailing lists! Geez. My headers
are set. The developers reference recommends it. I'm sure I've mentioned
this. What more do you want?!

He's had plenty of chances to join before making enemies. He also doesn't
have to make enemies.

Not particularly. It matters what the bug fix is: cf the patch Ethan
committed to boot-floppies CVS. And it seems reasonable not to make
randomly setting unimportant bugs to grave and flaming the maintainer
about them the most effective way of getting a bug fixed.

There isn't a working patch for this bug.

And perhaps you should take the time to look into the issues before
weighing in.

Or his misguided attempts to make sure whatever he says goes.

You might want to ask yourself why you're getting involved in this one
rather than looking at the bug report and trying to fix the package.
