        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.
