i forgot to mention that what i wrote here comes from my limited
perspectiv. I am aware that i percive things differently then
others, and differently then they are.

i would like to invite people to 
* think about this
* find more examples in their surrounding within debian
* check if this presented perception is realistic
* ponder where it (the concept of the eight characteristics, the
    examples) is wrong, what is wrong and how it can be
* try to find distinct ways to transform debian as a project
    along these lines in a global sense
* try to find what YOU can do to increase debians fitness in these
    eight areas in your surrounding (microscopic perspective)
* consider if it would be a good thing if more debian developers read
    this and thought about this. If yes, ask three people you know
    and who did not read this allready to do so.
* finally let others know the results of your considerations
