Default Bug#679236: O: ckport -- portability analysis and security checking tool

> The package as made hardy useful by Ron Lee's personal vendetta against me.

I searched a bit and AFAICT this is a reference to these threads:
bugs.debian.org/674634
http://lists.debian.org/debian-release/2012/06/msg00388.html
http://lists.keep-cool.org/pipermail/announce/2012-May/000086.html

From
http://packages.qa.debian.org/c/celt.html
I see that Ron Lee is indeed the maintainer of celt.

It seems to me from reading these conversations that Ron has no
vendetta against you. That kind of accusation is totally
inappropriate.

Ron does indeed have something against the package celt, and his
explanations make perfect sense to me. That is, he appears to be
right. He is also doing, AFAICT, the right thing.

I think NMUing the rdepends of celt is the right thing to do, if it is
necessary. (That is, if they haven't already been updated to turn off
celt.)

Ian.

For avoidance of doubt, the release team as a whole did not say anything
of the sort. I personally, and not any other member of the release team
gave the opinion that this ongoing argument is not something I wanted to
get involved with, and that I would not try to dictate a developer's
actions in this way.

References can be found in the debian-release archives,
http://lists.debian.org/debian-release/2012/06/msg00388.html and beyond.
