Thanks, Manoj, for your work in helping to keep Debian's Policy
technically rigorous and relatively coherent for as long as you have.
I think quite a few of us share your opinion that policy is one of the
most important things about Debian, and the largely unsung work of you
and Russ, along with all of the other patch submitters and discussion
participants is the only reason that policy has remained in as good a
shape as it has.

such that it can be singled out, by means of emperical tests, in a
negative sense: it must be possible for an emperical scientific system
to be refuted by experience.
