As a matter of fact, the flamewar which I started has not kept
myself from working on APT 0.6. I am waiting for Florian to give us
a direction. In the mean time, I have reviewed and somewhat changed
weasel's patch, and sketched a number of ideas about how to improve
APT 0.6 myself.

I have not seen contributions to the discussion other than the few
in the thread on d-p. I mentioned before that I fucked up by
starting a flamewar, and I tried to apologise. Nevertheless, if
development in Debian simply stops because there is a flamewar, then
(without trying to relay guilt) we have a whole other thing coming!

Florian: what's the status? Can we get started? Who will be working
on this, and where do we coordinate?

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
