Hmm, I've thought I would just be here. :)

In my opinion several Editors, MUA etc. make sense because of there
different functionality, use of resources, etc.

I can't see any real reason in which way two tools to upload Debian
packages make Debian better.  Please give an explanation for such
stubborn and stupid people like me.  In my eyes it would be a waste
of time for developers.

The same for bug/reportbug.  Reportbug is much more developed and
takes the user at his hand and lead through the report much more
sophisticated than bug.

It would be better for users if we would say: "Just use reportbug
of you want to report a bug."  Now we have to say you could use
reportbug or bug - just try it out and waste your time with this
trial.  Or you could just write an E-Mail to BTS or write your
own super duper bug reporting tool.

You might have noticed that freedom every time has a price.  One
important part of this price in the Free Software world is developer
time.  I wanted to decrease this price a little bit.  May be this
opens the resource to write some software which does not exist yet.

Kind regards


PS: BTW: I use dupload myself but I would not have any problem to
    leave it in favour of dput if dupload would be dropped.
