To me, debating the interpretation of the sentence "We will not hide
problems" does make sense, and is not irrelevant. The intention behind
that debate (namely, to address the question of transparency within the
Debian project) seems even more relevant to me.

I can't see how he tried to do such a reduction. People *do* have
different opinions on transparency in Debian, and they do have different
opinions regarding the question whether our Social Contract does say
something about transparence in Debian. This is not a word game,
although the second part (does the Social contract already say anything
about transparency?) surely is connected to different understanding of
the word "problems" in that context.
