I might have translated an Italian expression in english (this might not have the
same meaning), but i meant that there maust be something in the entire issue
that is true/matter of fact/source of the issue. I did not ment that the
entire issue is true. If people don't like James as DAM, i did not meant that James
is "bad", but somthing bad happened, while he was representing Debian. When
something like that happen i (we?) can't for sure defend or blame James,
because one is more driven by the good things heared, the other is driven by
people saying bad things.

There must be something true in this too: for example he did something that
people liked a lot (it's all but hard to figure what).

Now It's true that i started this short mail exchange thinking of James
haveing dnoe "yet another ... from elmo": some one sayed it's not. May be.
If we focus on open structure, we must be open not only in users <-> developers
direction but olso developers <-> developers (ftpmasters and keyring), and
developers <-> almost-developers (da-manager).
