I concur.  And I plan on working on a policy, with plenty of input from
real debian developers since I'm not one yet, but have been using
debian for many years and have commented on and off for a few.  I hope
I have enough experience to have enough of a core to be useful for real
dd's (and I am planning on becoming one, but I need to work on packages
with and sponsored by other developers first).  I'm not waiting to I
get the seal of dd to try to do useful stuff.



And that's my crabbing done for the day.  Got it out of the way early, 
now I have the rest of the afternoon to sniff fragrant tea-roses or 
strangle cute bunnies or something.   -- Michael Devore
