Parent article: Who maintains RPM?
I would like to comment in defense of Jeff Johnson. I think he was unnecessarily vilified
As the original submitter of the bug mentioned, I feel I should comment here.
I gave Jeff the benefit of the doubt for a long time, until he
proved utterly unable to listen to reason. You can bleat "Show me the code"
as much as you like (and I'd even agree with you -- were it more of a problem
for me, I'd almost certainly have written a patch myself by now), but a
maintainer of a package as significant as RPM simply has to listen
to bug reports from users, and take some appropriate action. Denying that the
bug even exists is simply not acceptable.
