If you're happy for the file to say that, then that's ok; I agree to
this compromise.

That wasn't so hard now, was it?

You'd find people a lot more willing to work with you if you offered
more help and agreed to more compromises than you threaten with NMUs.

documents the current state of the archive.

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
