Sorry, didn't mean to denigrate anyone's hard work.
_Some_ of my packages (hence "partly") have been re-used, and this doesn't
bother me at all, I was just pointing the fact out. A quick glance shows
that of the 550 Extras package I have the build files from, about 70 were
directly based on packages I made, with the changelog kept intact from the
point they were re-used. Some others (hard to tell how many, and definitely
not worth bothering digging to know) were re-used with the changelog reset
(alsa stuff, apt... haven't looked further than "a" ;-)).

My main point was just (once again) trying to make things clear about the
various unilateral decisions, and why they were that way.

Anyway, yes, 70+ of 550 is non negligible from my POV...
Oh well, I've said it now. So let the usual "he's so egocentric" and "he
didn't want to collaborate in the community project to keep his name
everywhere" type of flames begin (off-list would be best, thanks :-)).
