I'm not sure your son provided over hundred patches in bugs to get a really simple issue fixed in every other package. ;) > If you have > contacted me instead of having a tantrum, you would have known that I made > a mistake and I would have worked with you to have your bug report resolved > to your satisfaction. This is not my satisfaction we are speaking about. It's your package (that I don't even use). I repported a bug against your package just to help you and improve the overall quality of debian. I never received any mail from you. Not "thanks", not "go to hell and learn english in there", nothing. Only an automatic mail stating: * l10n changes Closes: #235812,#259567,#262738,#266356,#274900,#192165 Not even spaces after the colon, it would take 2 lines to close all those bugs in one shoot (note that my request was about i18n, not l10n). > I think that is why people receive emails from the > Bug tracking system.

If you want to improve your package's quality, I already gave you all the advices I could. If there is something you don't understand, I'd be glad to assist you. If you expect me to implore your pardon, you're dreaming, dude. > > So, please do at least the following to your package: > > - speak about the potential security hazard in description > > - check the pre-installed version before showing your crufty template (or > > use README.Debian, it's what it's good for) > > - use a proper config script instead of blocking the install with a db_get > > in the postinst (just read the debconf documentation) > > - do usefull changelog entries in your packages in the future. Note that I was too mad about all this to think properly. You should convert your template to an entry into NEWS.Debian, not README.Debian. And, as a conclusion, I think I owe you an explanation. I reported 151 bug report about converting debconf templates to po-debconf or dropping them (49 still being open). I become mad about this from time to time. This time, it falls on you. Last time it was mono packagers... Have a nice day anyway, Mt.
