Re: Re: problems with the concept of unstable -> testing
That works both ways - those who do contribute and help Debian across a
wide range of areas should be valued and supported, even if they show
that frustration from time to time. Everyone makes mistakes but why
must the most active contributors be the first target of criticism when
they criticise others who do little to help Debian? What about those who
simply obstruct other developers? Isn't there any wider consideration
that uploading packages that are unfit for purpose and refusing to fix
problems identified by more active, more respected members is only
going to frustrate those who do care?
What packages do you have in mind?
Where's the criticism of the original post that brings nothing useful
or new to the discussion and comes from someone who has done nothing
positive to further the release of Lenny? It's laughable. Why must we
always blame the responder and not the initiator?
Your questions assume several things I disagree with:
the original post comes from someone who has done nothing positive to
further the release of Lenny
we always blame the responder and not the initiator
Overly long freezes are a pain but the solution is not to complain, the
solution is to fix the RC bugs, help with the debian-installer, help
with the translation team and get the release finished. That's what I'm
trying to do, that's what Thomas was doing.
I didn't realize either mail did that.
