;-) Hehe. To be honest, it is way easier for me to think of Debian as a 
virtual multi-cultural country which has its own constitution, laws and 
habits, budget and resources, population (users and developers), gross 
domestic product (official releases), elections, and leader. Since I doubt 
anybody knows how to make so many different cultures to co-exist together 
flawlessly some dissensions enter the scene from time to time just to prove 
that this is multi-cultural country after all. The paradox is that if you try 
to import some tons of tolerance to such a country in order to alleviate 
these dissensions, you risk to fade out its multi-cultural beauty. So, there 
is nothing to be angry with, but enjoy your Debian citizenship ;-)
