gee, do you think you included every stereotype about women you could
have?  the only thing missing i guess would be something to the effect of
"they could bake us cookies at conferences."

it is really a shame that more women aren't involved in Debian or
technology in general, but thinking that their presence would do
something other than get some different intellectual perspectives
involved would be flawed.  i am not saying some women wouldn't have some
sort of gentling influence.  what i am saying is that this would only be
peripheral to what she can add to Debian or whatever she partakes in.
