With DFSG-free software one is always free to fork the program and add
the features one wants, if the developer rejects a wishlist item. I
don't think it reasonable for a developer to keep open wishlist items
that are known not to be implemented ever.

I don't think, however, that a unilateral announcement from the BTS
maintainer about closing access to the BTS for a single developer is a
good way of handling things. But as I read the constitution, it is the
right of the BTS maintainer to do so. The developers can then decide
if the decision needs to be overridden.
