So a rant complaining that bugs to a obsolete, not maintained anymore, package won't be fixed is "spot on"...

Yes, to me it is. Perhaps you missed the first part where the bugs are silently ignored for a year. It could also be argued that obsoleting a version after a year is not a good idea; especially when the market leader, Microsoft, supports the full OS for ten years at the very minimum. Instead of rewriting software all the time, which is another good point he makes.

So, please read carefully and extract what you can, instead of just disregarding it as a "rant".
