Yes generally I agree, but there are bugs where this would
be the case for all bugs.
Especially if the maintainer changes it is very hard to
understand them because he had no contact to the submitters
and doesn't know what the old maintainer talked in private
to the submitter.

VIM has two modes - the one in which it beeps 
and the one in which it doesn't -- encrypted mail preferred
