I agree here; Martin did not properly handle the situation and has
demonstrated neither the attitude nor the cooperation required in a
debian developer. We all have disagreements, but this seems to go beyond
that. I have seen no good reason why simple and reasonable requests from
the upstream maintainer were ignored.

I don't think that this is neccessary at all. Maybe the maintainer of
the package should change, so that everybody could come down...
Sometimes to people aren't able to work together, then the wisest of

No. He also went too far. The upstream sortware should not be trusted
until the author has demonstrated trustworthiness.
