I am just sharing my experiences so far. I tried to help them to fix
issues in mdm and my commits were reverted, even though other people
agreed with me.

I am just worried with the quality of packages in Debian. I choose
Debian over everything else because of its high quality standards.

Sure, but that doesn't mean we should introduce more mess. We should
rather clean up what's messed up.

I don't know, shouldn't these users just not use Linux Mint itself
then? The version in Debian will be quickly outdated then anyway, so
that most users will probably complain.
