@rdenis comment in LP:790216#15 :

"I find this insulting. But surely you know better than the main VLC developer (a.k.a. myself). Not."

Thanks for reporting this.

While I agree that rdenis's comments in that bug were combative to the point of likely being over the line (and some of the others were too), do note the date: it was nearly five years ago now. Others have already reversed the change to the Ubuntu bug task status, and rdenis has stopped engaging and stopped attempting to change it back.

I don't have a clear threshold for this, but my feeling is that, unless the CoC-violating conduct is continuing, taking administrative action at such a late stage is likely to do more harm than good; it isn't going to stop abusive behaviour in progress (since it's long in the past now), and we can't compel upstream to fix the bug.

Understood. Thanks for clarifying that for me. Closing this due to a misunderstanding on my part.
