Sure. I was refering to Steve's point about d-d-a being a list primarily
targetted at DDs and a must-subscribe for DDs. I just don't feel that some non-DD
can stand up and continue to demand changes that vocally if he's only a
circumstantial part of the audience. Especially given the fact that there was
no support for this cause from the target audience of the list.

And then he claimed to be a Debian developer[1] which is untrue given the
intended meaning DD.

Everybody can speak here as long as he contributes something useful[2].

Sure. I sort of realized that after sending my message that I should've said
that. Full ACK. :)

Kind regards

[1] The funny bit being that even the list page says "Debian developer" for
    the people whose messages are accepted.
[2] Or funny, but that may be -curiosa material.
