-devel would be a chaotic mess (even more than it is now) if *all* bug 
reports were forwarded there. ;)

Yes, maybe. From my point of view, feel free to raise the issue there. 
But please wait for Reinhard's opinion before you do so.

On the other hand, what we are missing is not the opinions of some 
developers - what we are missing is a decision from the people 
responsible for the archive. However, maybe we can put some pressure 
in ftp-masters this way.
