It was useful for everyone who actually uses testing and apt-listbugs
until you denied everything because a bug in debian testing in your
head is not a bug, it's a feature.

I don't care about you either, but I care about Debian. You don't.
You know what I meant. The thousands of packages in testing worked and
installed flawlessly because they were maintained flawlessly by people
who actually cared about Debian or AT LEAST cared about telling people
the updates were buggy before installing them via bug reports or what
you call "hacks". Even if it's "testing". But you're such a
pretentious bastard that even letting people know you made a mistake
is something you can't even comprehend so you prefer sending broken
packets to everyone, telling them it's their fault, AND closing bug
reports about your mistakes because everyone else is stupid -- except
you, obviously.

apt-listbugs is not "personal assistance", I am freaking entitled to
know that the packets I am installing are broken before making the
choice of installing them. People are entitled to know it too and
that's what bug reports are for and that's why I've done it.
Therefore, re-open all the bugs I published because there are still
problems with your work. Get over it. The fact that you don't use
debian testing doesn't mean testing can be your own personal mess.

Talking about personal assistance, you need some.
Continue coding -- you're good at it.
Leave bugs.debian.org alone -- you fail at argumentation.
