If you mean me, as upstream of libburn, then you got me wrong.
I am willing to help Debian packaging in any way. Just give
me clear instructions (and be open to objections and negociations
if those instructions show undesirable side effects).

If you mean the upstream of doxygen, which obviously stalls 60
minutes if it has problem with input data, then i must say that
this would be a disappointing attitude.

I myself have given up on doxygen.
Stable interfaces are a must-have.
How shall i prepare code for old and new doxygens alike ?

So i join your proposal to just not use doxygen.
Not because i think this is the right way to handle the problems,
but because i have given up hope that anybody cares for fixing
them where they have their origins.

Have a nice day :)
