This is about a package I maintain with a RC bug that'll cause it to be
removed from the next Debian release.  I'm with Debian more than 12
years, I'm pretty sure debian-devel@l.d.o is the right place to ask
fellows for advice.

Switching to systemd is a big change, and what you're doing is not in
line with common understanding of Change Management.  I, and our
fellows, shouldn't be told to shut up.  I need support from my fellows
just because of that change.

I know that.  It's not right, it's RC with justification "renders
package unusable".  It's just that since more than six years this
package worked just flawlessly without any changes.  I like that.  It's
something else that renders it unusable.

We all should welcome RC bugs, they help us to make a good release.
Looks like the question in which package a RC bug shall be resolved
offends some people.  Not good.
