Why do you do it, then?

What *will* be packaged/distributed for Debian is what *we* (Debian
developers, currently Sean and I) choose to package/distribute, not what
you (upstream GD developers) choose to put in some repository of yours.

Excellent if Sean wants to work closer together with you upstream people
on what you consider optimal for Debian to package/distribute.

No need for us to waste more time on talking past each other then :-)
