Well, you seem to mention mostly the flames, but forget about the fact that
most reasonable mails to the ftp-master email address also get fully unreplied
too, even when like it happened to me recently, the request involved something
relatively time-critical with the debain-installer rc3 schedule.
I understand that flames are entirely out of order, and me asking for the
question to be debated was not aimed at creating a new flamewar on the
subject, but because i really believe we have a problem in this field, and one
which can at times create undue delay at critical moments of our release
process or the release process of individual small-teams.
