You surely understand that it isn't appropriate for me to change a quote
which is attributed to someone else.
However, I did ask Mark to clarify it, and he has done so, so hopefully you
can rest easy and this subthread can die.

I did, but I have no idea what you meant to say by "a press release so you
can add d-d-a to your announce lists", or how this relates to the mail that
you cite. Perhaps you could rephrase it more clearly? The grammar in the
original is difficult to parse.

Please, be reasonable. You were notified about the existence of the patch

read. Don't blame Ubuntu because you didn't use this information.
