The Debian community, of course.

That was uncalled for. Debian has always tried to be friendly
to the users (though repsonses like this do make me wonder why)
Though the archive was messed up by a mistake (does anyone
here not make a smitake?), it has been fixed now (it was more
complicated than it looked), and xlib6 is back now. It shall take a
few days to propogate.
Also, let me remind people that this has not been an easy time
for us; we had a disk failure on master, followed by a fgried mother
board, and then a hub failed; addd that to the archive being damaged,
things have taken longer to fix than any one would have liked.
May I be permitted to point out that the developers happen to
have real jobs too? I would much rather be in bed with my spuse at
3:08 am than trying to help out here.
