Let me summarize (at the risk of revealing stuff discussed behind closed
doors - you only quoted me, not your own message):
~ * Recently a subject X was opened for discussion on debian-private.
~ * Some, including me, felt that there was no need for X to be held
secret, and we complained about it.
~ * You argued, Konstantinos, that X required secrecy until fixed.
~ * I proposed the above "timelock" secrecy mailinglist.
So, why not?
I assume we all agree that debian-private is a hack and should be
avoided as much as possible: We state in our policy that we will not
hide problems, and as we nowhere state that we will hide other studd
than that I assume that we won't hide anything but what is absolutely
necessary to operate our otherwise open and transparent structure.
If a technical problem I suggest solving it by finding a technical solution.
If a political problem, then please explain to me what it is (as I
assume our agenda isn't secret).
