Re: The horde of sloppy maintainers is a myth. Maybe not.

Nice to see you assert your gut feeling is right and that stupid
people are candid enough to believe in myths.

When you change your mind and actually start caring, try and check
what you're talking about, try and dig up some actual clues. Starting
with FTBFSes filed by buildd maintainers right after packages got
uploaded because they're missing Build-Depends might be a good start.

And no, this is not about just a single person. But if you think you
already got the whole picture, give facts, don't talk about your gut
feeling. You're not Gibbs anyway.
