Who do you respect, Hans?  Many Debian Developers are also Free Software
authors.  How much respect are you showing us with your brazen
accusations of impropriety?  Did it occur to you that posting a rant to
the main development mailing list of the distribution might not be the
best way to resolve your grievance?  Do you realize that after a brace
of beautifully crafted non-specific rants on your part, most members of
the Debian community reading this thread have *no idea* what offense
you're referring to?

There seem to be two possible causes for your rage that people are aware
of: the unintentional omission from the binary package of a credits list
contained in a README file, or the removal of an onerous sponsorship
blurb from the output of the program.  Can you clarify which of these
two items is the object of your concern?

Or if you'd rather continue the non-specific ranting, I'm sure no one'll
mind one more thread of the sort on this particular mailing list...
