Bullshit. The last time FTP masters REJECTed a package because of that,
I spent more than an hour to get the list right, for a package that took
only a few minutes to update. I can hardly imagine how fun it must be
for a big package.

When you spend more time on administrative stuff that no one will ever
care about than on actual packaging stuff, something is very wrong. As I
have already explained, I won’t spend any more time doing that. If you
feel like REJECTing packages because of that, fine. We’ll surely find
some NMs to disgust by doing administrative trivia, and in the meantime
packages will be found on a repository on alioth.

Furthermore, I noticed a few times some wrong *license* statements that
passed through NEW and that I fixed later. I just wish you spent less
time nitpicking on copyright holders if you don’t have the time to check
things that actually matter.
