Now you're dodging responsibility.  You stepped into the roles of
mentor and maintainer, and thereby became primarily responsible for
the QA function of this software within Debian.

No, but I am saying that you are working in isolation vice every other
downstream ZoL distributor.  Representatives from Arch, Gentoo, Red
Hat, et al, and their respective families are all regularly (and
openly) active in the ZoL support lists and tracker.

Again, look at 01000cbc and try to figure it out.  This is a good
training exercise because I fixed in during upstream import, and Aron
fixed it independently downstream.

Do your own words sound disrespectful?  I'm just shoveling back what
you said earlier.  Errors are no big deal.  We'll do QA later.  Our
filesystem packages will be tested the community.

This is why you got plonked.  You don't listen, and when do you hear
something, you dismiss it as accusation or fantasy or FUD.

Nevertheless, when your work improved, I began importing it and will
continue to do so. I'm only withdrawn from doing code reviews because
they are so upsetting.
