As for me, if someone is not interested in something, why he must be
involved to it? E. g., Debian community has not so many members from
Saint Helena island, and what does it mean? Discrimination? Something
else? No, their majority probably don't use internet at all, and the
rested are not interested in Debian. So why we are not accusing
communtiy of discriminating Saint Helena inhabitants? :)
Hopefully, no Debian members will be against women joining to Debian.
But as we have no discrimination, they should satisfy all requirements
put in for all candidates. No more :)

Excuse me, you are against sexism, but what you mention is the same -
from the opposite side. That's the same "women's" sexism. If we should
respect women's rights, may be women should do the same? Otherwise it
looks very childish, sorry.

Best wishes,
Velichko Vsevolod.
