tech-ctte was cc'd on this bug today and I am very curious if we will be asked to make a decision on it 👀 https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=970717
@ehashman every argument you made was voicing a different tiny complaint I've felt. I read through that chat log cheering you on.
This one really stuck out to me as a user:
> most of these applications have basically given up on OS packaging, they either provide their own debs via a PPA or generally say "do not install using a distro package manager ever"
It sucks when they do that. Thank you for fighting this fight!
@mikeburns generally I think sentiment from the ctte is that overruling the maintainer wouldn't make sense for a multitude of reasons, but not everyone was able to attend the last meeting so I must wait until we reach an official consensus :)
