  I never said the problems of all those teams were alike. But I don't
think the www team works properly either. I suspect the problem is more
that nobody want's to fight all the DD corpus about a design issue, and
then implement it, because some will find it's too this, others to that,
and the rest will just troll.

  What was unfair wasn't to say debian-www has issues, it was to put it
on the same level than DSA, and for that I appology to the member of the
www team (or group as as it was correctly pointed out, it's rather a
collection of people in the unix group rather than an organized team,
which is also IMHO an explanation of why it does not move a lot, as
there isn't anyone really in charge of the big whole beast).
