Text in the body isn't a rule, but it is strongly preferred.
Otherwise, I suggest you follow the lists code of conduct (below).

The scope is packages which are either in or intended (preferably
with an Intent To Package on http://bugs.debian.org/wnpp) for
the debian archive. People (many with copyright scars) offer
advice to packagers, upstream authors and others involved.

You could, but you will probably get a lower response. Please
try more general forums like those hosted by the FSFs or on
Usenet. (I'm not really up-to-date: where should we refer to?)

My Opinion Only: see http://people.debian.org/~mjr/
Please follow http://www.uk.debian.org/MailingLists/#codeofconduct
