I remember that this was talked about, with Matthew, some years
ago. At the time, a least one person argued that they *wanted*
Matthew's posts on Planet because his work was directly impacting
Debian in a number of way -- and because he has a long history of
working and contributing to our community. My memory is that Matthew
himself started out leaning toward leaving but was talked into

Given his past contributions and strongly maintained social
connections, I certainly think of Matthew of a Debian community
member. And given the relevance of his work and blog/content to the
project, I'm not going to suggest removing him.
