I actually like the the idea of having user pictures displayed in the BTS, but 
I dont want to use this libavatar thing, as it either means running moar 
software on my server or relying on some external entity providing this 
service and storing my data, which are all things I dont want.

So I'd appreciate if the BTS would also look for these icons on 
http://$alioth/~user/avatar.png or such. (or using the hackergotchis from 
planet, but thats just for the few people on planet.)

The avatars are now fully federated, and all caching and retrieval is
now done from debian.org resources, which should mitigate the privacy

Anyone who wants to set up their own
http://wiki.libravatar.org/running_your_own/, or you can use libravatar
or gravatar if you do not wish to do so (or you can do nothing, and no
image will be displayed for you.)

It can sometimes happen that a scholar, his task completed, discovers
that he has no one to thank. Never mind. He will invent some debts.
Research without indebtedness is suspect, and somebody must always,
somehow, be thanked.
