Because after having asked on #dd and #-kbsd the same questions (you
were asking the proper thing to do, etc.), you were answered to please
Cc -bsd@ to make sure everything was in order, which you didn't do.

Of course, trying to get opinions on IRC, being explicitly told not to
rely on IRC, and to use mail instead is something you may want not to
follow in the end… [*]

From the libsepol1 bug, you might infer that porters care. And guess
what, porting is not about porting everything. It's about getting an
architecture together. That obviously (or is that not so obvious?)
includes dealing with packages that are arch-specific. That means
P-a-s. Surprise!

See [*] above. If you want to do something your way, don't ask for
opinions and ignore them afterwards. And play the “I don't know what
you mean” guy. That's just grotesque.
