Re: Bug#804315:Namespace issue

+1, there is definitely a lack of communication there which is most likely to be considered as disrespectful to a bunch of people involved in live-build and live-build related (ie : downstream projects using debian-live).

When something appearing as a fork (even if it's said differently) is using a level of reasons of this kind :
"This is not Debian", "this is not pure-debian", "I know I'm going to upset people but I'm gonna do it anyway" [1],... without the respect due to human-s involved in a project, then this is definitely is *not* sticking to the spirit of the debian social contract.

One can understand that anyone is not super-well-skilled with communication (this is mostly referring to the recents e-mails from some people involved in vmdebootstrap mainly but not limited to since everyone here is human and can act this way by mistake) and there is nothing wrong with that, we are all *just* human and then are making mistake, but one can as well understand that after such a miscommunication problem and this huge bunch of messages on the lists [2], there is some communication that needs to happen.

Debian is not only about code. Hope to see that coming back soon in proper communications *and* decisions.

So, hands down and, please vmdeboostrap people, communicate in an "exchanging" fashion.

Thanks for reading.

[1] funny sentence : if you *know* by advance, ... well then ... don't do
