Could you please explain what relevance this message has to debian-devel?
This is _for_ Debian development, remember? Noise can go directly to /.
Allow me to quote you back to you:

Subject: Debian-devel is full of noise

The debian-devel discussions have been very noisy of late. It's
becoming difficult to get much that is useful done on the list.
Well said. So up with the signal and down with the noise, please.
Thank you, Dirk
If the current stylistic distinctions between open-source and commercial
software persist, an open-software revolution could lead to yet another
divide between haves and have-nots: those with the skills and connections
to make use of free software, and those who must pay high prices for
increasingly dated commercial offerings. -- Scientific American
