What happened to Debian Social Contract #3: "We will not hide problems"?
I was aware that this blog post would not help to improve Debian's
image. And I care a lot about Debian's image. But I care even more about
Debian's health, and I think that this problem is hurting Debian at a
much deeper level than PR, and has been doing so for a long time.
I think that we (DDs) should all feel ashamed that we have not been able
to find a solution to this. It looks a bit selfish: once you are a DD,
you don't have to care about DAM anymore (except when your key expires).
Anyway, when this problem will be fixed (not just worked-around or
postponed), I will very happily blog about it, and try to help reach a
wider audience than my blog post did.
