Just as a side note, this is not the first example, but one of those
commits that made a total rewrite necessary. By quality, the last ones
by Ludwig and Vincent aren't any better either. Ideally, fixing sth.
shouldn't be only about adding lines but about re-factoring lines.
Otherwise the next commiter might be tempted to add his personal 'osc
scratchmyback' command w/o communication too.

Don't complain without telling with which code this should be
merged/refactored with ;) And current code did just the wrong thing
leading to invalid data (multiple bugowner entries) by default.

Adrian, it's about adding yet some more osc commands without fixing those that
are already existant. It's about bloating the code and copy pasting stuff
around. Lastly, it's about commiting quick'n'dirty first, maybe communicate
afterwards and if in doubt tell, it 'can be fixed later'. The latter is a tale
told ever so often with regards to Build Service code.

We should start thinking about how to fix this behavior now. The OBS may have
been a pet-project by some, but now it is used by lots. If we want to keep it
like this, we have to deliver quality stuff.

And, if you insist we're an open project, we should act as one. Therefore, I
deliberately keep this discussion public.
With kind regards,
