Re: Bug#235732: Announce of the upcoming NMU for the atlas3 package

Greetings, and thanks so much for your work here!

As I understand your proposal, I do object, so please abort, at least
temporarily, so we can consult upon the best course forward.  I have
already consulted the opinion of many atlas users, and the 'annoying
note opinion' is far from universally held.  Please also note the
currently reduced priority of the notes.  This said, I might be
persuaded that some or even all of the content belongs in
README.Debian.  What I object to is basing this assessment on the
opinion of those submitting bugs, and not the vast silent majority who
appear to like things the way they are.

Take care,
