Why can't i post on debian mailing lists, if it costs nothing but email
archive space and some bandwidth, which is cheap nowaday ? Just because
you don't like what i have to say i should i have less right to the use
of the mailing lists than you or others do ?
Or do you deny that this is a ways more important topic than the choice
of code names, or seeing the d-i folk fight over usplash, or any other
random thread on our lists ?
Why should i have less right to post on the lists than others do ?

Please tell me when i have been spreading FUD. I have always told the
truth to the best of my knowledge, which has not been the case of
everyone here. As for dead horses, i am not dead yet.

It is not my fault it is a pointless one. Why can't we take this
oportunity to finally handle this issue like it should have been from
the start, and give debian a tool to really handle such social problems
so it won't happen again in the future ?

To what end ? So we can have this same mess in two weeks ?

My responsability :
- I admit that the d-i team don't want to deal with me, too bad for
debian and them.
Mmm, somehow, this seems at total odd with what you say. I still claim
that the d-i leadership decision to remove my svn commit access was
unfair and stupid, but it has been over 6 months now that i have
abandoned all claims to it, and have repeatedly said so, without it ever
being notice. Who speaks of FUD ?

Not due to my behaviour, due to unaceptable full play, and
irregularities in the expulsion procedure. This is not the same, and
this is the truth nobody wants me to claim loudly.

Sure i won't accept it. If you would be fair, you would not accept the
expulsion procedure as it was done either. If you where honest, you
would yourself ask for an investigation about the shady dealings which
happened back then. But as it is bothersome truth, i need to be

Well, i think you are wrong. The irregularities around the expulsion
procedure are hurting deban, and many are outraged by it, even though
they remain silent.
But debian can grow up, and learn how to deal which such social crisis.
Let's make debian better, and something where such problems can be delt
with fairly and honourably.
