Re: mjg59's blog on planet.d.o

AFAIK Matthew Garrett hasn't been "active and directly involved
participant in the Debian development community" for years. What is
the reason for keeping his blog on planet.d.o?
Matthew has been blogging frequently over the several past years, and
aggregated on Planet Debian. He has, for example, written a lot about
UEFI and Secure Boot, and the different ways in which Linux and
distributions can handle them. You said nothing then.
Now, when he blogs about what Ted Ts'o has said about rape, you react.
This sounds an awful lot like you want to remove Matthew from Planet
Debian because of his opinions on that issue.
You guessed (almost) right.
I am fine with active Debian contributors blogging about "women's
rights". I also occassionally enjoy a high-quality technical posts written
by an outsider. I can normally even stand when outsiders blog about
non-technical matters. However, I do not wish that Planet Debian
syndicates posts that denigrate Debian developers.
Normally I would just ask the blogger to stop feeding Planet with the
offensive content, but in this case I see no reason to have this blog
included in the first place.
