While I suspect with high probability that your statement is correct,
I think that your message to debian-devel didn't include enough detail
to be useful.  If you want to flame Eray for screwing up the latest
upload, that's fine but please provide enough detail that we can
objectively evaluate the situation reading your message without
digging a lot.  Otherwise you are just spreading anti Eray FUD and
really there is enough of that around.

I think your message would have been entirely appropriate sent
privately to Juichi who presumably has a bit more detail about the
situation.  I also think it would have been fine with somewhat more
detail to debian-devel.  It's nice when reading threads where people
are likely to violently disagree to be provided with enough facts to
judge the situation objectively.
