Heh, I was sure you'd reply something like that. Let's face it, you're
just asking too much for such a little detail in our way of working.
Adding single line in the pseudo-package files is not a big effort and
it can be easily reverted if anybody comes up with something better.
Until I see something else working, I'm not going to change my mind
(you know, you're doing the same thing so you can easily understand me).

Forget about bitchers until they provide something else.

Things are not working like that. We do things, if people are unhappy,
they improve things. Consensus rarely exists until we see something in

I've done the first CGI, I'm unhappy with that, I want a BTS entry
because it's better, I ask for it. If after several months, we realize
it's not adapted at all, someone may develop something else. Until
then what I propose is imho the best thing we can do. Stop blocking
people from doing things when those things don't hurt. Just tell me
why the sponsorship entry is bad.
