 - Debian is invited to participate in the LCC
 - Debian does not, at this time, have to commit to anything at all, 
whatever the output of the LCC is.

Looking just at this, it seems - to me - more or less obvious that Debian 
should participate in this project, if there is manpower available to do 

Any 'Debianisms' that get pushed into LCC will lower the work ISVs have to 
do to support their applications on Debian.

Any LCCisms that get accepted into Debian (for whatever reason) will do the 

Any output of LCC that some affected package maintainer does not like, he 
may ignore. (Having sound reasons may help keeping the discussions short, 
though :^)

Whether Debian should or should not strive to be an LCC compliant 
distribution is not under discussion right now.  The same goes for all the 
other 27 topics that are being discussed in this thread.
