Yes perhaps you are right and if many Debian developers
think in the same way there is no problem.
As I am not a developer yet so I posted the request only
because I simply think it necessary for Debian.
(This is the first reason why I do not write and package it ;-)
The reason why I think some discussions and/or agreement
are necessary is
- it might be better if many packages adopt sensible-x-terminal
so agreement is necessary.
(it seems only the maintainer of language-env expressed
approval to the request)
- also I was taught and knew that this was already discussed (or
caused bigflamawar?) so it might be necessary to get agreement.
BTW there is almost no response and I wonder
- this means there is no objection?
- many of you are already bored with this issue?
- only neglected?
