You're welcome.

BTW, in many cases I been able to fix these problems by sending patches 
rather than just complaints upstream. Basically, I think we (i. e. 
Fedora) are the which are concerned about this, and in that situation we 
are the ones motivated enough to provide a patch.

For upstream, merging such a patch is simple; it's just about comments 
and docs.
