Then, um, don't.  Doesn't affect me either way.

Can you describe the cases in which you have altered your practices in
response to the views of Debian developers?

I refer not to technical decisions or particular patches, but rather,
things on the level of policy and overall structure.  As far as I can
tell, you have not done any such.  This makes it seem unlikely that
you really are willing to entertain such changes.  Perhaps, though, I
have missed.

You have attempted to convince Debian that what you are doing is
already cooperation, but that is not the same thing as a serious
interest in what Debian would like.  Instead, you have tried to
convince us that what you are providing is what we should like.
