I bearly have the time to read the debian-devel mailing list these days. I
thought we had an aggreement that when the Policy mailing list came to a
determination on new policy that you would publish that new policy on the

I haven't the time to try to track down bug reports (this is the first
time that source has been mentioned) nor can I dedicate an afternoon a
week to re-read the current manuals for policy changes.

I you have the time and energy to write up a complete bug report, just how

I am tired of fighting his battle over and over again. From now on, if new
