        I did not say that, and your deducing that was my implication is
 jumping to unwarranted conclusions.

        So people are doing things for Debian that I am not. That does
 not give me the right to tell them what more they can do. And vice

        While no one else has the right to tell me how I spend my time,
 or do my work, I do not have the right to tell them how not to do

        If I vett my plan of work with some people, that is not wrong.

        If I am talking to people about how to convert policy docs to
 docbook, and what works, and what does not, it is not wrong.

        When I write code for devotee, I make the design decisions. I
 would be silly not to seek and listen to feedback, but that does not
 mean I cede the coherent design decision making to the hordes.
