Several people including myself tried to do so, getting answers like
"not being part of the consensus" because mails arrive later than you
expected them.
While I think you are trying to do the right thing, the way you are
doing it is the worst I've seen in Debian so far.

So its privilege what counts in Debian? Not what you are doing? Or how
much time you are spending in Debian? Those, who actually do most of the
work in Debian behind the scenes, haven't been seen at all in these
discussions. Please go away with your privileges....

How can you accomplish your goals if nobody knows your goals because
nobody reads your mails till the end? Maybe because they are just not
privileged enough to have the time to do so...
