Hi Ian, (dropping the bug in CC, as it has nothing to do with it). Le jeudi, 4 avril 2013 12.27:01, firstname.lastname@example.org a écrit : > It seems that Historical Revisionism, of the bad kind, is now in > operation at Debian, in that critical commentary about unapplied patches > is made to disappear down the memory hole, without leaving so much as a > trace on the relevant bug report. > > If it were thought that the criticism was unfair, or inaccurate, then it > could be allowed to remain in place, so that other people might judge > its lack of merit for themselves. > > In the case of bug #684128, post #108, however, the fact that the > offending message was promptly vaporized* (as will be this one also), of > course suggests that the opposite is true. Are you talking about that mail ? http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.debian.devel.bugs.general/1040315 If that's the case, I'm not surprised that it got flagged as spam and removed from the bug tracking system (as that's what I suppose happened): I needed to read until the end of it to notice that this long mail was vaguely related to the bug at hand: both the subject and the content look like spam to me. That said, I don't find that this mail is unfair criticism, just that it is not sufficiently related to the bugreport (more in shape than in content) to be unambiguously non-spam. Dropping obvious spam from public archives has nothing to do with "Hystorical Revisionism" or whatever else: don't assume malice here: I think that in this case either the automatic filters or the human triagers have slightly overlooked your mail. So please, next time something puzzles you similarly, ask for clarification in a neutral way instead of publicly accusing "Debian of operating Historical Revisionism", which is incredibly rude. Cheers, OdyX
