Make a better suggestion if you think this is suboptimal.
Suggestion for what?
... for specifying the participants.
I participated in the work towards concensus regarding a name for what
has since been described as "thingy 1". I lost interest when I realized
that the object of the debate was not only that but also other thingies.
I will consider participating in a vote, too, depending on its design.
No, I have no interest discussing (again) if it is better to limit the
scope of this debate to "thingy1". Which also means I have no interest
in discussing how to best design a vote.
You will not discuss, but I propose to start a doogle poll (thanks
to holger for the suggestion) to find a name for the thing that was
formerly known as CDD and is specified by the following features:
is a part of Debian that
* customises Debian for specific user needs which might be special
working fields or language specifics
* adds some substructure to Debian (meta packages, specific debtags,
etc.) which simplifies usage for the target user group
* has a special team of people working inside Debian and as an instance
to contact upstream authors of relevant software
* does not use any extra pieces outside of the debian.org domain
What I wanted to say with my paranthesis above was simply that I am
surprised by your change of method.
Damn, I will continuosely change the method until I see a way to
find a new name that is acceptable for a majority. The current way
is a doodle poll which sounds really promising to me.
I did not mean to judge any of the methods, nor the switch.
Well, I consider switching methods reasonable if one method turns
out to be unsuccessful. Did I missed something?
PS: Holger I think I've got the point of your other mail (the longer
one) and I'll answer it later once I gathered the proposals for
the poll that I would like to create.
