Ok, please read : 

  Message-ID: <20070529103814.GB31809@powerlinux.fr>

and then we can discuss. Also note, that i did stopped asking for d-i
rights over 6 months ago, if not more, and have told this numerous
times, including to you ?

The fact remain, also, i asked that the more general solution be
examined, did you even care to reply to that mail ? Did you even show
you received it ? No.

Furthermore, just look at the amount of quotes against me, compared to
the ones in favour of me, and then ask yourself if you had been fair in
the handling. When you took all that days to compile this list of FUD
and caloumny, did you ever stop to think what effect it would have on me ?

So, i ask you again, why can we not have the whole issue solved ? Why
did you hide the dates of the expulsion procedure ? I want a fair
hairing. I want that debian dotes itself of a body capable of handling
such social issues in a fair and honourable way, composed of people who
can be trusted to be honest and fair, and who have a clue about social
and psychological dealings. I recognize that neither you nor James are
especially suited for these taks, i may be wrong about this, you will
tell me, but this is not the impression i get from you in the handling
of this issue. You may be full of good will, and the partial issue you
where handled didn't help much.

Still, one fact remains, i strongly believe that :

  Debian cannot expulse or suspend someone for writing a lot of mails to
  mailing lists.

Care to bring up a GR about this (i would, but i am suspended, and
coming from me, people will just knee jerk and make sure i am silenced,
so ...).

There is a void in the debian constitution about the social problems, a
void which leaved debian open to the worse escalation and impression of
full dealing, corruption and what else. Notice i say impression, but i
fear that more often than not impression is enough to do extreme hurt.

So, will you help clean up debian, and make sure something like what
happened never happens again ? 

Sad that it all had to go this way, sad you DAMs chose not to handle
this at FOSDEM, in RL, sad that Debian devotes so much time and energy
in order to not solve its social problems, blindly hoping the problem
will go away. And i was told that i am far from being the only social
problem currently in debian. Won't we work to change that ?
