Well, I'm afraid I don't quite agree with you. When I was talking about the
thought, I was talking about intelligence. And intelligence seems to be
thrown out from this thread, because intelligence is not knowing
the answers, it's understanding the question.
The bug _is_ a potential security hole. And I was first amazed that saying
that Debian can be improved could be a scandal. And I'm now tired and
disgusted after reading insulting mails, written by people claiming they
are the kings of security and knowledge, Almighty sysadmins, insulting
explicitly or implicitly people because they are french...
Doubt is like humour : the privilege of intelligence.
PS : congratulations for your knowledge, Paul. But I must say that there is
for me only one philosophy : the german one ;)
