Ah, conspiracy theories.
One of the assets useful in a large organization like Debian
is the ability (tact, communications skills) to be able to get other
people to do things for you -- even things that are nominally on
their plate. Add to the mix that most of the people doing much more
that take care of their own packages are overworked volunteers,
rarely appreciated, may have large egos, and conflicting constraints
on their time, it becomes really handy if you can approach them as
friends, and not as flunkies one make demands of, or with downright
hostility, like the above post.
I can honestly say that in my 8+ years in the project, I have
seen no concrete evidence of a cabal _or_ of black helicopters (well,
apart from one flight op)
Gerrold's Laws of Infernal Dynamics: An object in motion will always
be headed in the wrong direction. An object at rest will always be in
the wrong place. The energy required to change either one of these
states will always be more than you wish to expend, but never so much
as to make the task totally impossible.
