You are a troll.

If you reread my messages, you'll find that at no point did I refer to
anything in contrib as part of Debian.  You, on the other hand, have
demonstrated not only technical ineptitude and lack of understanding, but an
even more pronounced inability to behave decently in a public forum.  I have
yet to see you contribute anything but flames to any discussion or project,
and your previous message was a perfect example.  You chimed in just to
point out something obvious and irrelevant, and didn't even get it right.
