It seems there is a misunderstanding of what I was trying to express.

It does not bother me that an upstream dev asks the maintainer to add some
warnings about the early state of an application and the need of proper bug
reports. And I'm fine with giving warnings about that.

What I do not understand is him asking for the removal of a package. If he
put a public svn he should accept that code is checked out from it.

Anyway I do agree with the benefit of understanding and collaboration
between open source communities.
