What happens when something like this stays in the BTS? Herb looks like he
is refusing to fix a package, when he is already taking action on the issue.
The problem is two fold:
DS comes with a bug report telling HX to undo the split that he has spent
his time on, without asking why it was done in the first place. Maybe HX
knows something that DS doesn't?
Then HX gets annoyed with DS and tells him to "Fuck Off".
Really, I think DS is the _First_ to do wrong.
Whenever you're dealing with someone else's project, and time; address any
changes very softly, and _suggest_ changes, not demand.
Really, what does one more package hurt?
Is there some field that contains splitting information for large package
sets? Detailing such issues, that -doc or lib don't already show?
