So you get PISSED OFF when people fix bugs in your packages during bug
squashing parties?  I had someone "fix" a package of mine in a bug
squashing party, never sent a patch, never contacted me personally,
and uploaded the NMU version.  Had I been contacted, I could have told
them the upstream package was being updated and there was a better
fix for the problem.  

Lighten up (both of you) -  Bernd has a point, doesn't want someone creating
a mess he has to clean up later.  Branden has just as valid a point - he
is BEING PAID to work on ia64 compatibility of packages, and can devote
time to fixing build problems on the ia64.  Why can't the two of you work 
*together* to solve the problem, instead of getting in a public pissing
match that does no good for anyone (except suck up bandwidth)?
