Can you please give a specific section so we know what information
you're talking about exactly.
[The following is a clarification of what I said given Thomas'
response but please don't waste time reading it.]

The "you" did not refer to you but to Ian Lynagh to whose email I was
responding. Secondly, I think that Ian asked a more general question
about "random people" (i.e. not porting teams) uploading packages
(which is something which happened in the past) and I provided more
information about this. However, I don't think what I said applied to
the S/390 case initially discussed and that's why I cleary said:
| Anyway, I don't think either of these apply to the S/390 example which

So given that I was a) not responding to you and b) not commenting on
your S/390 case, so why do you think it's necessary to point out that
what I said doesn't apply to your example when I quite clearly said I
was not talking about that example? (This is a rhetoric question; I
think we've wasted enough time on this now. Please point out the
wrong sections in the Developers' Referecence though so we can fix it
and go on with life.)
