Please, don't be upset by a simple reply :)
Debian is so vast, that statistically you can always find someone that
do and don't agree with you. That reply was from someone that does not
think your work is valuable (even if I don't understand why).
Please consider that Neil's opinion, while worth listening, DOES NOT
represent the opinion of Debian as a whole.

Neil, I don't think you can argue that much, since your last sponsored
