I think we have.  A very recent example, it took Ian a long time to get
back to the arguments with regard to the DFSG2.  This really made a mess
of the discussion.

I never claimed otherwise.  But I didn't see Ian in a lot of these
discussions really.  He kinda seems to drop in at the end of them
responding to the first messages.  I realize he's a busy guy and I am not
trying to be unfair to him, but I really believe he hasn't had the time I
believe is necessary to devote to the project.

I hope Ian isn't offended by this and I really didn't want to get into
discussing it at length.  I'm not trying to say Ian is a bad leader, only
that he just doesn't seem to have enough hours in the day to be the best
leader he could be.
