Sounds like somebody who doesn't understand what debian-women is?
A lot of people jump into quick conclusions like debian-women is:
- a debian subdistro only for women
- a only women allowed group
- a special entry point (and the only one) to allow women contribute in debian
Sounds like the woman you talk about thought it was the 3rd point :?
