You might not like it, but it's how we work in such cases. For X people
against, I can find X people who agree, and in such situations, unless
you're ready to launch a GR, you have to accept the decison of the person
in charge or be ready to do the supplementary work required to satisfy
everybody (such as an option that lets you hide this box).

I accept that you disagree, but I don't accept that you should have the last
word on this topic because you are not maintaining the PTS.

It's the only derivative which has the infrastructure required to share
such information with us and it's the only one that's big enough so
that the information possibly hidden in their bug tracker could be of
interest to us in some cases.

Just forget the box in the corner... it's the same as forgetting about a page
(which would be linked from the PTS anyway).

The day where we have more than one interesting distro to track, I'll
gladly do that.

Of course, this would be great and I'm interested in this, but it's not
directly connected to the problem at hand.
