sure! and so I did, also knowing Filippo personally. In fact, despite
the limited amount of time at his hands, he is doing his best to
review my other upstream software package, which is arguably more
urgent than hasciicam: freej, for which i've also fixed open bugs but
had no way to upload them.

ultimately what is very frustrating is just the fact of not being able
to upload anything and to keep receiving bug notices that i have fixed
in upstream months if not years ago, while volunteering to fix them
and being an upstream developer for the software, willing to become DM
for his packages.

i hope i didn't annoy you too much with my mails and if it was so i
apologize for my Mediterranean temper (but well, as your next
gathering is in Bosnia/Erzegovina then you'd better start get used).
one could call it just a rand, but i'm trying to give a point of view
of an upstream developer willing to enter Debian and some hints why
Debian is "not very popular" among software developers.. acknowledging
such situations is the first step to make things better, no?  in
general i think less beaurocracy and more trust for people and the
code they wrote so far would help Debian to get better.
