As previously demonstrated, I am no expert in the politics of TeX.  I
would have assumed that people maintaining the distribution were those
who maintain the source codes shipped with it as well.  If its not the
case, I may go see somewhere else without further due; but I would have
liked to see the problem I pointed discussed, so that I would know where
to go.

Free software is a common effort, and it doesn't help anyone when some
bearded guru answers by the aggressive when someone reports a bug.  (A
bug, not a query.)

Have a nice day.
