I'm no hero, I'm a paying customer and I just want to be treated that way. Unfortunatly this is what happens when a company has a monopoly (which Valve does in digital game distribution market) and doesn't give a fuck about customers anymore. What however does suprise me is 100% support for such unacceptable behaviour by pretty much everyone in here and at that Github, this is very odd and a sign of a serious problem in customer - business relations in Linux community.

I guess I'll have to go to github and complain about Valve's shit customer service because they never contacted my grandmother to make sure she knew what games I wanted for my birthday.
This goes regardless of whether the problem does turn out to be with the non-standard thing or not - the significant chance that it is, and the difficulty of proving that from the support end, automatically makes it a waste of dev time that could be spent doing something useful.
When you're using a git version (that's not necessarily stable by its very nature) and a completely unofficial PPA that replaces many core packages, your chances of getting anyone to try reproducing your bug are poor. When you act like an obnoxious twat and start swearing at the people you're demanding help from, those chances drop to nil. Don't.
Valve has no such thing. There's GoG, and EA's thing (Origin, ugh) too.Unfortunatly this is what happens when a company has a monopoly (which Valve does in digital game distribution market) and doesn't give a fuck about customers anymore.
