daniels, ok, I could be investigating the wrong mailing list. It's not the first time. But this is where I got that idea. Am I missing something?

So let me check the debian-devel-announce mailing list. There it is, the audit trail of a release critical bug I never knew about it until today, 3 months after the fact (and those were three months of fairly active investigation). I take back what I said about the lack of openness in the Debian process. But I think I have a good case for complaining about the opaqueness of the process, and the fact that a single e-mail to the upstream developer and a single NMU could have rescued the ivtools package from being scrapped from woody. A large part of the problem lies in the fact that I've found no way to search the entire archive of Debian newsgroups all at once - they don't all seem available on deja.com.
