What is so damn hard about respecting a "Mail-Followup-To:" header?

sure sounds like you're questioning Marcello's experience. Your footnote
("Your reasoning shows either you're not used to them, or you're plainly
trolling.") doesn't help.

"Not that many, actually"? Are you serious? If so, we now know for sure
which participant in this thread is not familiar with Debian packaging.

First you write:

And then you write:

So which is it? Are there de-facto standards for people to be familiar
with, or are are there no de-facto standards?

You can't even be consistent with your own quote staring you in the


PS I wrote this, and then decided not to post it, until I read your
reply to Lukas Guyer, which once again made a big deal about how you
were following the "de-facto standards" of Debian. It's amazing how much
intellectual dishonesty one person can demonstrate in so little space.
