Jerome, you apparently have no idea how collaborative open souce
projects are supposed to work. Xubuntu is not a pet project of anyone,
it's not a one man show on sourceforge where the maintainer gets a kick
out of imposing his or her view and feeling accomplished because of this.
I don't care about being 'super boss'. Super boss of what????
I do care about the users being happy with whatever I work on, it has
nothing to do with any person in particular.
Apart from that the package selection and goal of distro has little to
do with who does the bug triaging or packaging. Xubuntu is part of the
Ubuntu project, please study how they make decisions. Short version: the
decisions are not necessarily made by thise who work hardest, they are
reached by discussion and with a clear goal in mind.
The fact that you refuse to work on the project unless you have your way
also says something about how much you care about it.
Also read the code of conduct again.
