Where is this bzr repository, and is it possible to browse it with a web
interface?  And also, could you send the commit notifications on
dep-commits@lists.alioth.debian.org? Lastly, where did you indicate what is the
authoritative source for the DEP ?

I find it very ironic, after being accused of dictating my point of view and
not seeking public consensus, to see that most of the work on the DEP as a text
document is still kept behind the scenes or buried in a repository that has not
the same facilities of access as Svn or Git, and that the DEP drivers do not
expose their editorial work on a publicly archived mailing list.

For the moment, your insistance of using bzr has turned down more contributors
than it has attracted.
