Re: Re: Kill the DPL! (Elections are almost over)
No, no. David, you are missing the subtle genius of my plan.
Being awarded the DPL wouldn't make you responsible for doing anything, it
would recognize what you have already done.
This whole silly notion that the DPL represents the opinion of Debianers can
just go away. There is only real way to ask Debian's opinion is a GR. Debian
is fluid and organic. People package things because they want to, not because
a DPL consulted his cabinet and ordered them to.
My good friend and fellow cabal member Bruce Perens, for instance, speaks at
far more conferences and talks with many more executives than any DPL ever
will. He should just be a member of the "Debian Speakers" team, any of whom
can be approached for your conference, formal dinner or Baht Mitzvah.
