How would you do that? A popup in ABRT that reads

has decided to not accept any bug reports."
I think this would be a *really* bad user experience.
If telling the truth about Open Source development decisions
provide a '*really* bad user experience', the packager and the
hosting project has to decide
if a fork is in order, and if they can credibly do it; or
to remove the package and explain why; or
if it is such an immensely popular package that one 'CANNOT'
omit it [firefox and the Mozilla Foundation's approach on
trademarks comes to mind], still document a URL to the problem
in the popup on a pre package basis
Concealing and hiding from the truth (lying to one-self and
others about reality) can scarcely be called 'being excellent
to one another' or to the community toard which advocacy and
service are being targetted, no?
