GNU/Hurd is the GNU system where it is done the GNU way like GNU/Linux
is done in the done the GNU/Linux way and *BSD is done the *BSD
way. We have to fit all those 3 systems into one distribution, but why
should the whole distribution look like the current practice of
GNU/Linux? Doesn't the current practice of GNU and *BSD matter?
Shouldn't we have a discussion what the Debian way actually is? 
Especially if the current practices on those operating systems differ
in a big way. 

The problem with some Debian developers is that they think they can
use all Debian GNU/Linux things on GNU/Hurd and *BSD without a
problem. That's not the case.

The other fucking problem is that some Debian developers don't want to
listen if you have a different opinion. A lot of people on this list
are closed-minded like hell.

Note that I say 'some' here.

And why do you drop the CC of debian-hurd? Don't you think this
discussion also matters to them?
