It's possible. If so, I would have expected a short notice to
-private rather than cc'ing a personal message to Andrew.

Is there anyone who wouldn't hire Andrew because he was
*punished* for a post, rather than because of the post?
The "lesbians" post was public and GPG-signed, after all.

I think some developers are still looking to get even with
Andrew Suffield since last summer (for what's described in
after DD Roger Leigh linked it to this months's events) or
maybe even before that. Religious intolerance reflects more
badly on debian than the minority. Help stop it, please.

(Done manually. M-F-T is a broken non-standard.)
