I'd like to emphasize what I think is most substantial on Christian's
mail here: Flaming each other gives us all a nice tan and is fun every
now and then, but the Debian mass seems to be sick of it. So sick, the
amount of stupid flaming has unbelievably decreased in the last

We have here yet another opportunity to flame each other. Please,
don't take advantage of having the opportunity. I know for a fact both
Ian and Guillem rock as programmers - They don't get along well (or
didn't get along well, at least, in this scope)? Ok, so be it. But in
the end, I _know_ they both put all their effort into making Debian

I am nobody to judge you, specially given my lower activity level of
the last months in the project. Even if I were.

Please stop this.
