While I'm not against a general 'equality' list, I don't think it
be a substitute for the debian-women list. I don't think it makes
to lump together all underrepresented groups and assume that the
solutions to their underrepresentation will be similar.
Nor do I advocate such a "lump". I do think that there will be some
similarities between the right way to address underrepresentation of
women and underrepresentation of other groups, especially in the
methods used in the early stages to identify barriers, create
infrastructure and choose tactics. Why do people think those are so
different for women?
It was suggested to me off-list that other groups will know to look at
debian-women for those tools; also that debian-women does not
discriminate. If that is the case, the list seems ill-described and
possibly misnamed. Please fix it soon, as I think you will get more
bug reports about it and subscribers do not seem welcoming to them.
