Default ranting vs bug filing ( potential MBF: first alternate depends not available in main

Hi,

this is not particulary about unrar or Goswin...

http://bugs.debian.org/src:unrar shows me two unrelated bugs, none stating
it's useless.

I wonder why people rant here about bugs, instead of filing them in the
appropriate places.

Ranting on -devel doesn't change things. (Sometimes its useful to make people
aware, yes. But then, the next step is something else than ranting again.)


cheers,
Holger

And don't forget: One mans useless piece of code is another mans holy
grail.
