Ill-considered decisions seem to have become increasingly prevalent
among a small subset of Debian Developers. For example, a critical
but easily fixed bug was recently closed without fix or comment,
apparently based on personalities rather than technicalities.
Fortunately the ill-considered decisions of this minority are public,
which makes them available for consideration by their potential
future employers. Hopefully this mechanism will correct the problem.
