I don't think a debate is in any way a useful format for F/OSS, but
there's nothing preventing you from inviting to one and moderating

I thought #debian-tech @ irc.oftc.net was started with the "technical
debates" goal in mind, no?

I generally end up wanting to throw up seeing those people discuss.
Words and no action. And I more than often wonder why some people
are even given the chance chance to speak about a topic. Like the
other day I read a statement by Britney "hussy" Spears about the
Lebanon situation. WTF?

I'd prefer if Debian got work done rather than talk (too) much about
issues. We know we're going to disagree on many things, and mailing
list discussions at least give us links with some of the useful
comments to link to from DWN or other discussions.

I agree, but i think that the online meetings about specific projects
work. (eg: d-i, ltsp, ...)
