That is no spite. Ask on the developer lists.

Actually Ubuntu. Because the system is suitably easy to keep running
and has a working package system. Even if the particular package
policies for Emacs are not workable for developers apart from the
Debian package maintainers themselves.

I subscribed to this list when I had a need of understanding the Emacs
package policies. While I did not succeed in this endeavor, there are
still decisions made here where I think my input not completely amiss.
If you know for certain that Debian developers won't listen to input,
I might consider unsubscribing again.
