Possibly, but for two points :

  - i am not forcing you to read this thread, just as i am not forced to
    read each of the random flamewar which debian has had without me
    being involved.

  - this is a case where you can do something, so it is a bit different
    than the case of all those who suffer far worse than me, and where
    you can hardly act.

Well, i am just holding an open and public conversation with some folk,
is that so evil ? I believe the conversation has to be open and
transparent, past dealings have shown me that trying to hold them in
private will bring nothing, so what do you expect ?

Sure, but what will it bring ?

You mean, like : 


Didn't help, and that page is now almost 7 months old.

Would be a solution, but the problem is that there is absolutely no will
on the other side to even look at the problem, so i have no solution but
to make a fuss to say that the current situation is unacceptable to me.

It is so easy to solve this issue, so easy, that i don't understand at
all why people find it so important to come against me so strongly,
creating mails which amount to around half of this thread, instead of
saying, ok, we will investigate the issue, and solve this so everyone is

Sad, isn't it ?
