not sure about the facebook thing (it was a PS, i didnt even notice it
until you brought it up) :)
but quoting from the original mail (which my mailer nicely sorted into
the ubuntu-devel-discuss folder for me, i only noticed the cross post
when the first answers did hit ubuntu-users):
our hardware accelerated multiphysics simulation library - ASL has
recently entered Debian:
Now it is easier to use in Ubuntu, but I wanted to ask the developers
whether it is still possible to add ASL to the upcoming 15.10 release
considering the fact that nothing (yet) depend on it, so nothing should

this is a friendly request for syncing an existing package from debian
into the ubuntu archive, it is exactly the form that i would expect on
the devel list to get something into the upcoming release. when the mail
was sent it wasn't to late either, technically the process for me as
developer to sync a package from debian takes less than 30seconds using
the copy-package command from our tools. the request would have been
better as a sync-request bug in launchpad, but from people who do not
know the process a mail like the above is exactly the expected thing. it
is unfortunate that it ended up on the support list but we should stop
crying about spilled milk now and just move on :)
