Why? What we are experiencing here with Debian is working anarchy. This is a
delightful social experience (you have to be careful, as this can't be
transfered to real life, as we are only operating in a cybernetic
environment. But still it is amazing what we achieve).

I would agree with you if Debian would indeed show strong tendencies to
increase the buerocracy to operate. But I think, for a 500 people project,
the existing infrastructure is pretty much light weight.
