I must agree with Jim.  From the stand-point that Debian is losing
developers to other Linux platforms and architecture specialists are
giving their favorite hardware OpSys preferences I personally feel
this is a "fork in the road" for Debian overall.

Observational participation for Debian within LCC is perferred as
non-participation may be construed as "bad mannered" whereas complete,
wide ranging, participation will likely result in Debian being viewed
as "just another Distro with in a sea of Linux".

Debian, IMHO, has always set itselt apart.  Sure, their may be
internal issues, but any Distro in-motion, especially one such as
Debian, will have growth related problems.
