Utopia which is working pretty nicely with Ubuntu... And the argument
that you advance are more in favor of my mode of working: if people's
motivation is not static, it is even better not to have to rely on
people to work on their packages and to let everyone do so.

No, I already mentionned that I think some people are fucking things
too greatly and why I wouldn't consider open NMU a good thing right now
in Debian; I won't repeat the arguments here, but I simply think it's
not possible "as is" in Debian right now.
However, would this be possible, I consider it would be the rold of
the release team to block the release until the bugs which matter are
fixed: surprise, this is what they do right now!
I think you're imaginating things based on what I said which are not
correct simply because we are both talking on a to high level. In
other words, we're both loosing our time if we can make so stupide
