Because while it is one of the freedomes provide by free software, and
one we work hard to promote, there would be a lot of time and effort in
setting up another Debian-like infrastructure. This effort could be put
toward the current Debian infrastructure if it was accepted (which
remains to be seen), rather than to reimplementing a good deal of the
already existing infrastructure for another project. This could in some
ways result in something of a competition for developers between the two
projects, thus resulting in each being something less than they could
have been as one.
