Maybe it is because you never wanted to listen to people who were interested to
have the debian directory in a tar.gz, without a patch system on top of it?
I answered to your feedback request, realised that you were not going to change
your mind about format ‘3.0 (quilt)’, and then gave up. How many others?
I understand that you do not want to throw away your work on this patch
management system, but by making it optional, I think that you will actually
increase your chances of success…
