  Please compare [1], [2], and [3]. Basically:

    1. maintainer writes -devel
    2. maintainer writes -devel and files RFAs
    3. maintainer submits O: bug against wnnp and CC's -devel

    [1] http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2005/02/msg00346.html
    [2] http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2005/02/msg00534.html
    [3] http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2005/02/msg00676.html

  But orphaning bugs can be filed without sending mail to -devel, though
  this makes them less effective.

Arguing with an engineer is like wrestling with a pig in mud: after a
while, you realize the pig is enjoying it.
