Even if that's what Ian thinks it's too late to change Debian's system
of management now. I mean, just because Ian thinks something that
doesn't automatically make it fact. Debian's democratic structure may
be slowing it down against distros like Ubuntu, which appeals to a
largely mainstream audience, but it creates the greatest community
effort out of any distribution.
And like I said, whether or not Ian says it has no bearing on Debian;
He is going to Sun, so he won't be changing Debian's management
structure anytime soon.
