 Agreed.  Now be so kind to s/Debconf/IRC/g

 During a recent discussion regarding a bug a fine Debian maintainer
 pointed out how the bug's topic was discussed _outside_ the BTS and the
 most excellent conclusions which were found that way.  He was talking
 either about RL or IRC, I dare guess.  He also made me see what a lazy
 person I am for not keeping up with neither the bug's webpage (I have
 enough time to sit all day long clicking reload) nor traffic which is,
 by design, not Cc'ed to the bug's submitter.


 PS: Can we make "Reading Skills" a part of the NM process... *please*?
