Okay, we can also talk about the recent gs debacle if you prefer, where
the maintainer uploaded over a NMU reverting a fix, and causing
collateral damage so that people had to use t-p-u as a workaround:

  * the NMU:
  * the perfect idea, let's upload a new upstream during a hard freeze,
    always makes good impression, and of course do that before the NMU
    has transitioned for good measure:
  * and people having to use t-p-u for that:

What I'm saying is that I don't trust his opinion of Martin-Éric, and
that on the other hand, I've not seen Matin-Éric methods improve in his
recent work. For example:
or http://packages.qa.debian.org/i/ispell-et/news/20080908T073206Z.html
or http://packages.qa.debian.org/r/rus-ispell/news/20080910T113208Z.html
show that he for example doesn't test upgrade paths on a regular basis.
I cannot say if he's still handling people the same way he did in the
past for I see no really major contribution since.
