 Noone would have thought of anything else but you advocating this...
But if you want to advocate it you must be able to handle it, right?

 This is not about mrvn's mail because it is really polite, but often
enough so called public criticism isn't helpfull at all to neither the
others nor the person who made the mistakes. This is one of the reasons
why there are quite some people not subscribed to debian-devel (and even
debian-private, fwiw) and otoh don't really think about joining the
"official" rank...

 They might, but most of the time there still isn't need to publically
compromise others.

 So long,
"The reason why worry kills more people than work is that more people worry
 than work."
