Ok, I know this is a troll, but I just want to get a few facts straight.

Yes, a stable release ;)

It was posted on debian-devel-announce and the other relevant mailing 
lists: debian-project and debian-vote. The announcement also mentions 
the relevant web page where the result is published.

And yes, I find it apropiate that the Debian project doesn't give as 
much importance to politics as technical issues:

BTW, your mail here is kinda' off-topic (and I marked my reply as such).  
I think debian-project would be more apropiate if you want to discuss 
this (and not rant about it).

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
