Josselin Mouette and Planet Debian
From the above news article:
# Debian Project Leader Steve McIntyre told iTWire that after Mouette's "abuse
# of the ability to post to the d-d-a mailing list, I asked our mailing list
# administrators to remove that privilege for in future."
Josselin's most offensive behaviour is in the form of blog posts syndicated by
Planet Debian, above are links to the two most recent ones. He has stated
that he intends to keep offending people. His aim seems to be the censorship
of people who disagree with him by continually offending them until they stop
As the Debian culture is opposed to censorship, I believe that such posts do
not belong on Planet Debian - which is for many people the public face of
I believe that we need a code of conduct for the Planet. The Ubuntu code of
conduct seems like a good starting point. They have CC licenced their code
of conduct and encourage others to copy it.
The above article concerns the damage that Josselin's actions cause to the
Debian project. D-d-a is not that different from other parts of Debian, bad
behaviour in other forums also hurts the project.
