Re: miscfiles NMU?
Honestly, I do agree that my NMU was not justified. I just didn't bother

meanwhile, by looking at the 2 years old bug reports, I decided to fix
them as well because I like cleanliness. Why I didn't contact Thomas was

I could have been asleep, my girlfriend could have been here too and
since you don't know me, I could have a baby lying besides me (which I
don't have). We don't know each other and I don't permit you nor anybody to
call me at that time for such reasons, no matter how important they are to
Now that I've told you how to respect me a little, we could as well
discuss this in private and/or with the relevant Debian authorities.
It's a private issue and I don't like to be hung in public.
