Isn't a dispute about alternative fixes for a bug a technical dispute?
I thought that was your point.

The violation itself is not a matter for the TC (although it could be if 
the maintainer argued that it wasn't a violation at all). But whether 
your proposed fix is suitable for Debian when the maintainer prefers a 
different type of fix certainly is. And it would even be a matter for the 
TC to decide whether the maintainer is right in rejecting your fix as an 
intermediate solution.

And if the TC agrees with the maintainer and you still want (to help get) 
the bug fixed, your only option will be to code the more complex fix.

Anyway, I'm having a very hard time to take you seriously on any policy 
compliance issues as you are still CCing me on Debian listmail in 
violation of the Debian list policy despite a request I sent you earlier 

EOD for me.
