Heheh... Who would have thought that the people choosing to remove sysD and install sysV would also be the ones removing popcon (and 288 others from the minimal no-tasksel install...)?

I actually remove popcon because I don't want my level of insanity to impact others. :p

My understanding, before the debate ever popped up in the first place, was that maintainers get to ignore (NOT close) minor bugs with non-default xyz and that they are absolutely not allowed to stand in the way of anyone willing/able to continue maintenance.

It seemed pretty simple to me... As people stop using xyz, they stop supporting it, if that happens, xyz as a whole will deteriorate and eventually gave the chopping block.

Nice, easy, and gradual removal by consensus. :)

Maybe I missed something, but ya... the case reported looks like an incredibly excellent example of what we've agreed is a big no-no.
