Remember that a lot of the focus on debian is still: the individual
developer does the development.  Debian as a whole doesn't *do*
development, we do testing and coordination.

But probably this is meaningful for projects like dpkg.

Of course, Linus is now a father and has a full-time job. The demands
of which are likely to reduce his sense of humor for people saying that
it's too much work to send him a patch when he's getting so many that a
number of them drop on the floor, and even those that don't may sit in
his queue for a while.
