First, you have been explained twice the documented, working procedure
for handling the situation.  If you dislike it, the only appropriate
severity is `wishlist' (the likely tag being `wontfix').

Second, the two issues are in no way related, and must be filed as
separate reports.

Third, you omitted my question about README.ME+.

(You were talking about a configurable timeout, so I assumed a minimum
practical value.)

That is absurd.  You would rather waste time each and every day than
write a single line to a single file once?  There is *no chance* this
will ever be implemented.

Why reply if you have nothing to say?
