I stated when I started the SIG I didn't want the glorious leader
position, so I won't pretend I speak for it, and I'll only object for
the three affected packages I maintain or co-maintain.

If this change is to be done I'll insist his author explain and defend
it on the SIG list, then write a formal FPC proposal, and get this
proposal approved all the way up.

This is a "fix"¹ in search of a problem², and while I've been known to
make gratuitous changes to make a point too³, I've limited myself to my
own packages, and I'll appreciate the same restraint in my fellow

I don't mind people touching my packages, but only if there are actual
problems to fix.


¹ That can actually increase the probability bad packages make it
through QA

² One documented failure in rawhide does not count, if we shot
everything that ever went wrong in rawhide little would be left

³ Yes I'm a bastard too.
