Hi, mixing quotes (sorry).

Yesterday I moved this debate to maemo-developers since the current
topic about repositores and policies affects developers only. See

Bugs at maemo for extras apps (was Re: Steve's Ranty Review...)

It's difficult to follow efficiently both lists looking for topics
relating to developers (specially if the threads in maemo-users end up
discussing topics different than the subject).

Do you know we have Debian maintainers (and I would say experts) in our
team. btw a maemo packaging policy is underways, we are still polishing
details before share it for community review.
