OK, there is a bug filed against the package, with severity serious. But the bug is tagged "unreproducible", and the submitter did not reply to my last questions. Is there anything I should have done to prevent the removal? Closing the bug for lack of information does not look right to me. Would tagging the bug "moreinfo" have helpped? Or should I have downgraded its severity for lack of information? Cheers, Nicolas PS: please CC replies to me.
