Fwd: Re: Please don't feed the troll (was: [Debconf-team] help clear up Debians reputation; Debconf misdeeds)]

MJ Ray sent this to the mailing list but it doesn't seem to have
gotten through.  Am resending it.


It's not true unless it makes you laugh, but you don't understand it until it makes you weep.

07:57 <Ganneff> Dinosaur: either you get that to mail or to
/dev/null. but no longer here, you got enough answers here,
we used enough patience with you. this channel is not for
random-ranting like you do, this is for actually doing work. dont
go and try the same with every orga person here.

It's a bit off to tell someone to email the list and then abuse
them for doing so. Thank you for still answering, though.

The start of http://kosh.ganneff.de/krooger_debconf.txt looks
like Ganneff started escalating it by calling Dinosaur silly
and refusing to answer the question. Six of one...

I agree that some of those answers should be obvious, but I've
not checked whether all the data is published and you didn't
cite anything. Not that I care much about this one.

However, it has financial assistance, with support of the DPL,
from debian donations held by SPI IIRC. (Info not verified
as it's not on www.spi-inc.org yet AFAICT) That might be the
source of Ted Walther's confusion. If anyone wishes to see more
about that relationship, read the SPI March minutes/logs once
available on http://www.spi-inc.org/secretary/ or the
spi-announce mailing list.

cc Ted Walther - not sure if subscribed to debconf-team

Hope that helps,
