Re: OT, Re: Which softwares to install ?

Hello Samuel,

Please address how Dider's email violates this Debian Accessibility email list stated Project Goals:

The Project Goals are directly from the Debian -- Debian-Accessibility page https://www.debian.org/devel/debian-accessibility/:

Project goals
Bring authors of different projects with similar goals together.

Didier has helped with bugs that were mentioned here on the list affecting upstream projects. That's certainly in line with the stated Project Goals.

Maybe those goals should be amended to state:

Project goals
Even though previously one of our stated goals was cooperation by bringing authors of different projects with similar goals together, this is no longer allowed or desired.

The generosity stated in those goals was what made this the premier list for accessibility and held a laudable and desirable reputation in the field of accessibility.

Simply horrible!

Well, yes and no. He also redirects to another distribution, thus
unrelated to the question which was about Debian, actually without
saying that this is another distribution, and thus leaving the user
with possibly thinking that it's an updated Debian ISO, and thus even

Yes it is in some way on-topic since it's about accessibility. But this
is something I have already noticed several times in Didier's mails that
he puts not-so-related notes about Slint in other mailing lists (which
is what "hijacking a thread" means).

I also had a look at the archive, only to notice that there haven't been
occurrences in the past months, so I indeed overreacted due to past load
that my brain refused to forget, I'm sorry about that.
