The (simple) responsibility of developers to contact other developers
whose packages they want to touch far outweighs the (harder) responsibility
of developers to track general discussion and/or news forums. This is
a de facto axiom of how Debian functions and no amount of
this-cause-is-noble-and-worthy handwaving can put it aside.
