Actually, since I only subscribe to debian-devel, I didn't see much need
for letting people on debian-hurd know that I was killfiling Jeroen
(since anyone subscribed to debian-hurd and not debian-devel would not
see my posts anyway, and any posts made only to debian-hurd would not be
seen by me).

Furthermore, there's no 'discussion' here -- where Jeroen is concerned,
I don't think there ever has been, and there certainly won't be in the
future.  I don't <plonk> unless I really mean it.
