You opened a bug against the ctte, which is your perfect right as Debian
Package Maintainer. With this bug you asked for technical advice from
the ctte team. The ctte had it's discussion from May 17th, 2006 whereas
in the end Bdale Garbee called for a vote on June 22nd, 2007. The
outcome of the vote (as outlined by Bdale in Message-ID:
<firstname.lastname@example.org>) is that the committee endorses choice 2,
and libstdc++ udeb should not be created despite bug #367709.
I see no misstake in the whole procedure. You asked for advice, they
voted, the outcome was quite clear, case closed for the ctte. Please
respect the outcome of their vote, as you yourself asked for it.
Please try to understand that you should accept their oppinion even
though they didn't vote in favour for your wish. Such things happen, in
Debian as well as in politics.
PS: i set the reply-to to debian-project and will (as listmaster) accept
answers from you to that thread there, as long as they stay on technical
stuff, and are not personal insults against any member of the Debian
