I will thank you to stop maligning the integrity of our release manager.
Even if his contributions to Debian *weren't* significant enough to
warrant a great deal of respect, comments like this are certainly not
helpful to a community still trying to get a release out the door.  It
would be a wonder to me if AJ isn't considering resigning, when this is
the response he gets to honest expressions of concern, and it would be a
great loss to the project if he did.
