Seconded too.

Mee too as well. The only solution that I know is to discuss the matter in
a "smaller group" (like within Utnubu) and present the decision later 
to the larger group ... because people who join smaller group have a real
common interest while people flaming here are only eager to impose their
opinion on the project (since d-d is in theory the main discussion list of
the developers).


PS: Yes it's about time that we limit the number of email that a single
person can post on this list. Or impose a greater delay each time a new
mail comes. Or whatever, but we need to try something to avoid problems
like we had in the recent threads.
