This is no threat, this is a fact. People are resigning because other
people at key positions aren't doing the job they volunteered to do.

It got proposed because no one was able to give correct explanations
about why it hadn't been included. I still believe it was a mistake to
release without amd64. That doesn't make me think the entire sarge
release process was wrong; in fact it is certainly our best release

(Actually, I was already told I'm complaining too much about things
going wrong and never telling people when they are doing a great job.
But if I had to shout it loud whenever I think someone does a great job,
it would suck all my time.)

Why are you intentionally misreading me? "Letting things rot" is what
*could* have happened, had you go on with this position without finding
it interesting enough.
