Decide what? Which software is broken? Or whether this is a bug?

Of course the reason matters, but the bug simply was about a binary
package not being available. IMO the only way to fix this is to deliver

Fine with me. I don't mind having this bug reassigned. To be honest in
my opinion we should have two open bugs, one against
virtualbox-ose-source and one against linux-modules-extra-2.6 with the
latter one being blocked by the former. I still disagree with you guys
closing the bug though, though.
Just for the record we should note that this bug
had neither been reported against virtualbox-ose-source nor even
communicated with the package maintainers. But then, given that you are
part of the maintainer team for virtualbox-ose-source as well as
the linux-modules-extra-2.6 team (or even its sole maintainer, too lazy
to check) you might consier this enough information.

No, just a try to keep our bug tracking system as open and informative
as it can be.
