Well, philosophy is helpful for fitting into debian, but we also need
technical skill people because we are not discussion philosophy here,
but building a linux distribution.

Looking at the URL which Adrian mentioned for the report of J. Scott
Jaderholm <lispbliss@sage.cortland.com> from you, I have to say, that I
don't agree with it. Applicants with such a buggy package, should firt
be sponsored for some time by a debian developer until they can proove
that they can produce debian package without such bugs. Letting this
people become debian developer increases unneccessary the workload of
the QA Team, and we already have enough stuff to do.
