We all know launch a GR about this would be overreacting... :)
Main problem with this answer is not the content, is the way you expressed it
and my way of reading it (I read there "PTS is mine, shut up!").
I try to be open when I read it about what you mean, but you have to be more
careful in the way you communicate, specially since I know you are aware of
our communication problems in Debian.

I asked somebody when bloging about this issue, invite another derivated
distros to submit the info about how we can tracking them. This is done now.
So fine on my side.

Please, rename the bug title back to the original one and close it again (I
could do it but I did not fix it :) ). I will open a new bug with this.
