So, you're unhappy with the fact that it takes quite a while for Debian
to come up with a release. You've assumed a reason for that ("there's
too much"), but haven't done any effort to check whether that actually
_is_ the reason[1]. Moreover, in an effort to try to "fix" the problem, you
blatantly show no interest in any of our users except yourself[2] and
suggest to throw out even the most critical parts of _any_ system, the
documentation. Yet, you expect people to agree with you?

Sorry, that's too much asked.

If you really think it takes too long for Debian to release, there are
much better ways to work towards a solution than just to throw out more
than half our packages. I suggest you subscribe to
debian-release@lists.debian.org (if you haven't already) and try to be
helpful there; I suppose that'd be a lot better way to make sure Debian
releases more often.

[1] If you have, I haven't seen it.
[2] Calling much of the system "crap" and suggesting to throw out
everything you, personally, would never use is what I would describe as
"caring only about yourself".
