I'm sorry, but when I upload a new upstream release of Django, I don't
check every new file.

It's all good that you do it, but it's not necessarily a requirement
and I find it hard to blame daniel for that. You can blame him for many
other things (too many packages, etc.) but this is overdone.

I'd really prefer that you stop attacking him for the sake of it and accept
his help and review his work exactly like he can review your work. For
this, using the public project on Alioth seems the right thing and as you
know Daniel is the admin of that project and you're part of it. You do
have everything you need to effectively collaborate.

Of course, each one has his personal preferences and everyone has to make
some compromises to be able to work together. I haven't seen you ready to
make any compromise up to now.

I know that Virtualbox is "hype" and it's good to have his name associated
to the official Debian package, but pretty please keep in mind the best
interest of the project...

If you accepted collaborating, you'd have had the possibility to review
the work. Now you're forced to discuss the ownership of the package which
is just useless. :-(
