It is instructive that ArchLinux quietly and professionally packaged
mpdecimal-2.5.0 hours after the release:

https://www.archlinux.org/packages/?sort=&q=mpdecimal&maintainer=&flagged=


This is in stark contrast with Python-dev, where a maintainer of an *experimental*
*nightly* Ubuntu package that abuses --with-system-libmpdec claimed that "Ubuntu
builds are broken".  And a release manager who has no libmpdec expertise or authority
took the side of the "bug" reporter without much thought.


I presume that ArchLinux still follows the "shut up and hack" philosophy.
