Using other examples to say "people do bas stuff elsewhere so I'm
entitled to do the same" is not a good practice.

And, really, comparing uploads with 4, 6, 10 bundles libraries (bad)
with an upload of a package with TWO HUNDRED libraries??? You shouldn't
have done that hoping that it'd slip through.

Yes we can afford not to have an up to date version in Debian. We could
also afford not having Kubernetes into Debian.

And the fact that the project is popular is not a good reason either.

I'm sorry, but the way you do things and try to justify yourself
afterwards is not really something I find normal for a DD who commited
themselves to the standard the project defined as its own.

It's far easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them.
