As a notorious list lurker, I always envied those "in the know" who had a
better understanding of Debians innards. There is a delicate balance between
maintaining proper privacy for those involved and the interests of the
project at large.
I fully understand Martins concerns and also feel that it had been better to
post the full list to -private. That notwithstanding, I see the announcement
as a interesting indication of the health of the project. Thus I want to
encourage Branden to further post regular signs of life from the DPL.
