Why is this a problem ? Very likely their "bug" isn't a bug at all,
and even if it is it will be a lot of work to try find out that it is
and identify the bug.
It seems to me that Debian will be better served if we spend our
effort working on other bugs that are more likely to be real. In the
end the user in question, and people like them, will be better off,
too, because Ubuntu is a Debian derivative, so when we are working to
improve Debian we are often working to improve Ubuntu as well.
Or is it just a problem because you don't like a downward graph in
distrowatch or google trends ? Are we managing by targets here ?
