Well, but not only time is changing and I think it's time that debian-qa
changes a bit moving away from the maintaince of orphaned packages to
take care of QA issues.

I think that there would be people around who would take care of those
orphaned packages.

Well, I wouldn't say that there's a agreement about this especially
since this wouldn't ensure that really all packages get fixed and either
all packages should be fixed or none.

Right, but having at least a general agreement and a coordinated action
to fix this would seem to be better then just filling bug reports.
Because ignoring or closing bug reports is very easy and at least some
maintainer will do so.

I don't think it's not an over-reaction when you are just stating that
it seems that your opinion and understanding seems to be imcompatible
with others. And then I just draw the conclusion that I then better shut
up and don't mail any further suggestions.

Well, you may not have intented to attack me with your statement, but
when I read it, it felt being attacked, since I have some reasons, why I
won't post anymore to -devel. So, I'm saying now sorry, if I insulted or
attacked you with my previous statement.
