I've been following a fair bit of the discussion, but it's hard to pull
the facts out from the opinion..  I'm not belittling the Debian team
efforts, and I'm sorry if I seemed like I was.  If it is a losing
battle, then it's one that we should try to equip ourselves[1] to win.
If you are saying that we can't equip ourselves then fine, but it's a
shame.  We are on the same side here.

can help more than they are doing.
