Well, I was being a bit glass-is-half-empty there. I’m the maintainer of the
broken package, the change that broke it was mine, and I’m certain nothing
outside the mule-packages tree is broken by that last change. My judgement
on issues related to the package tree has been bad recently, however, whence
the pessimism, and I do not intend making any more changes to it until I’m
sure it’s better, except, as in this case, to apply a fix I’m sure about to
something I’ve broken.
