Policy decisions, even drafting policy, does not have to be held
in deep dark secret; indeed, policy creation in Debian has usually
been held right out in the open. Going away and crafting what you
think is going to be a finished policy and expecting wide adoption of
the fait accompli is likely to have surprising outcomes for you.
