And we all missed libcddb+libcdio soname screwup ca. 4 weeks ago, as
well as we missed the C++-ABI breakage which recently occurred with some
package (I don't recall which it was), as well as we all let many spec
changes and package update pass without any QA.

I am not talking about "vicious" maintainers, I am talking about that we
nitpick on adding licenses and indentation, while we let changes, like 
%configure CFLAGS+=" -DXXX "
cp /usr/share/libtool/config.sub .
pass through.
