Would you please calm down now anbd stop this haughtiness ? I am now expecting
apologizes from you and am rather pissed at the way you constantly get
bashing, and over reacting on this and the kernel stuff. If you say i am not
qualified, i expect you to shut your mouth on anything kernel related, and not
go screaming murder and trying to override us when we deal with the removal of
kernel packages.

Ah, yeah, i would really have appreciated if you had dealt with this when the
powerpc builds where silently broken for various consecutive days, but the
only comment i had was : 

  Add the builddep on poxml back in that was removed completely unnecessarily by

unnecessarily, yeah, sure, and after i get remarks from joeyh that the powerpc
builds are broken, and please fix them, thanks a lot. Soon i will again be the
guy who singlehandledly delayed the whole release by a week, thanks all the
same, i don't know why i continue bothering with debian-installer stuff at
all, and you are complaining that porters are not helping, but i can see why
there is no interrest in it, if it is for being threated like shit. and i
don't need to tell the state you left the powerpc d-i in when i had no time to
look after it after the sarge release.

So, why did you need to go into the sven-bashing in the above paragraph ? You
say i am completely stupid and have no idea what i speak about, and now that ?

Well, the other possibility for this would be for poxml and stuff to change
the poxml and other non-arch-dep stuff to use :

  (7.6 of the debian policy)
  Build-Depends-Indep, Build-Conflicts-Indep
      The Build-Depends-Indep and Build-Conflicts-Indep fields must be
      satisfied when any of the following targets is invoked: build,
      build-indep, binary and binary-indep.

If you had used that since the begining, things would have been much easier
for the porters and all.
