I'm curious - why do you think that our process can't scale for fixing
bugs and releasing? There's plenty of scope for more people to join in
and help fix them. Many people have, in fact, done so. I have a great
deal of sympathy for Holger's attitude - an important part of Debian
for me is achieving releases and I'd *hope* that most people would
agree with that.
