  no, because (unless the person doing it forgets to) you get a mail
  when your bug is forwarded upstream.

  see above.

  again, see above.

  "When Debian users make maintainers feel hurt, and not valued, and
  willing to quit." That's nicer, even.

  three random things that I did for Debian today:

    - http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/pkg-kde-commits/2005-January/000171.html
    - http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2005/01/msg00434.html
    - http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=274779&msg=26

  plus about 10 mails to handle KDE bugs in debian.

  just to find out, at the end of the day, some nice guy complaining
  about a bug not having being handled. it's *true* that sometimes you
  need a fucking thick skin to stay here. still: 

    - http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=247312&msg=43

> Seems like we all like discussions,

  no, I like to get things done and make my users happy. some of them
  won't let me, though.

  yes sir! could you give me your bank account number so that I can give
  you some euros for this great piece of advice?
