If I have one regret from my 18 years in Debian, it's that when the

in very unhealthy directions.

We're fucked! (in my perception of this language there is no better way to say this).

I know that no person is irreplaceable, but for as long as I know Debian, I have
experienced Joey as a voice of reason -- seemingly indistractable from technical
matters, and one of the giants whose proverbial shoulders are carrying this project.

If the trajectory towards a more inclusive project does not have enough room to
accommodate people like him, I doubt that the price we need to pay for the achieving
this goal is worth it.
