Re: Renewed appeal to the technical committee about the FransAndCo.Vs.Sven dispute
Sven Luther writes ("Re: Renewed appeal to the technical committee
about the FransAndCo.Vs.Sven dispute"):
I'm glad to see that I'm not on your list of `one-sided' people. Not
that I expect you to be pleased when I tell you this: the reason all
these people are disagreeing with you isn't because they're biased.
It's because of your intolerable behaviour.
I hereby propose the following resolution:
1. We note that Sven Luther has a dispute with the debian-installer
team; Sven feels that he should have access to the d-i svn
2. We note that the d-i team, who manage that repository, disagree.
3. Whether or not someone should be permitted commit access to a
repository is a social and political matter. Therefore we do not
have the power to overrule the d-i team on this question.
4. Nevertheless, we wish to state some opinions as we are
empowered to do by s6.1(5) of the constitution:
5. Sven: Your behaviour leaves much to be desired.
You should stop wasting everyone's time and energy with this
campaign to be reinstated as a d-i committer. Regardless of the
merits of the original decision, by now it seems unlikely that
anyone on the d-i team would find you a congenial colleague, and we
can see good reasons for their decision to hold you at arm's
Please do not contact the committee again on this matter.
6. The Project Leader should delegate (to a group rather than to an
individual, but perhaps to an existing group or groups) mediation
and disciplinary powers, including the power to intervene
informally, give formal advice and reprimands, rule on social
disputes, and take disciplinary action short of expulsion.
