To all the new guys on the list- this is especially sad considering
this package was just brought up on this development list and tpowa
was quite clearly active in the discussion. I know you guys think it
is cool to have the latest and greatest in the repos, but us old guys
do things the way we do for a reason. *You need to ask the maintainer
before touching a package*, plain and simple. Don't version bump
without doing this first (especially a major version bump!) and at
least giving ample time for a response. Just because a package isn't
in [core] doesn't mean it is easy to stay on top of.

Thank you Tobias for bringing this up; I've noticed it with more than
just this package.
