Shrug.  Put up another machine.  Nobody is stopping anyone.  Use
debian.net namespace if you have to.  That's what the volatile archive
is likely to do through sarge, and I imagine they will have many more
downloads than some of the lesser used arches.  Like I said, I have no
axe to grind, and no attachment one way or another.  But it does seem to
me like the volunteers doing the core work are saying they can't
continue, and people are screaming that this is somehow unfair.

I have read them ad nauseum.  They are silly and unhelpful, for the most
part.  However, I have seen no evidence that this assertion about people
dropping the ball WRT their Debian duties because of Ubuntu has any
basis in fact.  If some eveidence and names could be supplied, it would
feel less like sour grapes.
