I have not asked anyone to file bugs on my behalf.

The issue here has two parts. First, whether a bug report is filed or 
not, there is no restriction whatsoever on discussing the problem on 
this list. If there is one then may the list admin please specify what 
cannot be discussed about GNU/Linux.

Second, as long as list rules are adhered to, no member has the right to 
be mean towards other members or dictate terms even if he happens to be 
a Debian contributor. The freedom of posting messages related to 
GNU/Linux or its components is available to every member equally. Nobody 
wears a crown.

If we start pushing messages out of this list on the basis of their 
related package websites then there is no need for a GNU/Linux user's 
list at all. GNU/Linux is a modular system full of diverse packages and 
every package has its own forum and website. Since every problem is to 
be discussed on the relative website, what is the purpose of this list? 
I like to give feedback to the public so that they don't have to go 
through the same pain and sweat and are better prepared to handle 
problems that may crop up.



GNU/Linux !
No Viruses
No Spyware
Only Freedom.
