Normality is not necessarily a judgment of morality, but it
is necessarily a judgment of normality.  The DPL's judgment
looks mistaken and I continued to explain that continuing to
work on debian is possibly more normal than walking away.
Basic research like browsing the web or Usenet shows that
in great quantity.  So, what reason is there for suggesting
Sven Luther's approach to personal life events is abnormal?
And how does it help, anyway? Will Anthony Towns mediate to
a conclusion, rather than abort while criticising one DD?

(By the way, are most DDs not getting paid, either directly
or indirectly?  Serious question: I've no data on it to hand.)

I await replies with interest.
