(Just to show that I do not always argue, Ralf, I strongly agree with
you on this!)

This is a highly unusual way to approach this question. Ralf is also
correct that you are using the wrong channels, and attempting to get
support on social media is also inappropriate.

Mr Pekar, you do not seem to understand how the FOSS development
process works nor how FOSS operating systems are developed. You need
to go off and learn about this rather than demanding to be included on
user-support lists.

My only point of difference with Ralf here is that I /have/ once or
twice seen other developers asking for their apps to be included. It
is not the correct way to do it, though.
