I think you completely forgot about the fact that this project is run by 
people who aren't payed for that.

And, yes I didn't fix any RC bug today, nor yesterday. I even have now 3 on 
mediawiki for which I won't be able to take much time. 

And I won't explain my reasons, it is private for me. However the packages are 
open for any contribution. Maybe yours ?

I don't agree with Bastian on his proposal but I would never express myself in 
that way.

I won't fall into the easy agressive answer, but your attitude is clearly
