        I'm surprised you think raising ones voice civilly in concern
 about a problem area in Debian is not  playing nicely with others. Is
 your contention that some volunteers are so much more equal than
 others that no voices may ever be raised in concern about their (lack
 of) performance ever again?

        Nathaniel Nerode's postings have never been uncivil, they have
 never called anyone names, has never failed to respond in a manner
 which rises above civil discourse (at least, in the mails I have
 looked at, which were just this last 10 days or so) -- so I am forced
 to come to the conclusion that you must equate any dissent as not
 playing nice. In that light, how do you view your dissent with a
 member of the tech ctte and a senior debian developer? Would people
 be correctly justified in asking for you application to be rescinded
 as well?  (;-), for the humour impaired).
