So we got caught, so what? But we did the right thing.
It must be SCO. They have cleverly disguised themselves as BYU
So we got caught trying to br BYU students. You guys win that battle.
But you have to admit at least we care enough about Debian that we are
willing to make suggestions. We don't want to offend anyone in particular,
but you guys have a talent for computers, but your leadership is failing in
the bright ideas department. Besides programming issues, what great ideas
has any leadership put forth to keep bring Debian to levels and hieghts not
even imagined by anyone.
The real reason Ubuntu does so well is they have not only programming skills
but a leader with incredible vision and new ideas, something DPLs and others
seem to not. As evidence where are the constant DPL's great ideas for the
future of Debian? All the voting issues and debated issues are over things
like "GFDL position" or throwing people out of Debian. Nobdoy ever posts
anything concerning a vision for the future. NOBODY! except non DDs. YOu
all just don't seem to care.
WITH THE PROGRAMMING SKILLS YOU ALL HAVE, IF YOU WOULD TRY TO PUT THE
BIGGEST VISIONARY AS DPL, HE/SHE WILL TAKE YOU TO LEVELS NOT EXPERIENCED.
ALL ~970 OF YOU.
I know you will ignore this or say don't feed the troll, but the man/woman
developer with enough guts to say to the rest of the DDs, "Debain could do
so much better, here's some ideas" is the DD we will have so much respect
PS.. For further evidence on how poor your leadership is, I refer you to how
much caos there is on your mailing lists.
You can't keep your release managers:
You have no control over your ftpmasters who act like they run the world.
You do nothing but put each other down. I refere top all the posts about
svenl. You all don't know how to work together at all.
You have the biggest reputation of all distros as being jerks to others.
Then pawn off your cowardice by saying "we're all just volunteers"
You lose half your Developer wannabies, NMs, because your mentor program is
lousy and you are more worried about making people suffer through the
buracracy allowing people who honestly want to help Debian to do so. See
You say it takes you guys a long time to release packages because you want
them bug free. HAAAAAAAAA!!! Things like gnome 2.12 come out and it isn't
in Unstable for like 3 months. It would take less time to get packages
ready for stable if you would put them in Unstable.
You talk about how much care you put into finding good developers, but you
can't even get them to work for you:
YOu have to threaten them to work, and yet the bugs are still there.
etc... we could keep going but there is not enough time in the day.
In short, get a new Leadership,(WE are aware of new DPL Elections), but who
are you going to elect? And there are more to your leadership problems than
Our advice to you all is get some control of yourselves, and some leadership
with good ideas and clear goals that are revolutionary. Or start working
for Ubuntu, at least they have leadership with the right quality.
