Sorry, but Debian is a do-ocracy first, and a democracy then. AFAICT you
do not maintain any of the involved packages, so thus far your best
attempt has been to convince the maintainer of your ideas, which is a
reasonable course of action.

As of now, you've posted 30 messages in 4 days, arguably often repeating
the same arguments; apparently, you did not manage to convince the
maintainer to change his decision. If I were at your place, I would have
realized by now that continuing along this pattern won't achieve much

Now, I'm deeply sorry you got insults in private mail, that's surely not

In spite of that, from here you have the following choices: (1) engage
the democracy part of Debian in an attempt to overrule the maintainer
decision (note that you would need some DDs to support that course of
action), (2) give up (possibly changing your distribution of choice due
to this change, which would make me sad), (3) continue your previous

Among these choices, I gently ask you not to pursue the latter.
