Helen, Martin - thanks for your effort. I found the first hour basically wasted time - the strength of IRC is that it's real-time, while the form of the first hour of debate did not really use that, instead showing the weaknesses of IRC when text needs to be copied & pasted around :-) The 'Questions for the Candidates' emails on -vote, together with a summary like <http://debian.edv-bus.at/vote-2005/> (thanks to David for doing this!) is much better suited for this. In contrast, I very much appreciated the second part of the discussion - it was, as several of the participants said, a bit chaotic, but I think both of you started to try to lead the debate a bit more towards the end - successfully, in my view. I haven't looked at any earlier IRC DPL candidate debates, so I can't compare if this was better or worse. So long -- vbi -- Hail Eris!
