[confused] Where did I say *anything* about the Debian Constitution.

Point of view is an apt description (no debian packaging pun intended).
What 'you' see depends not only on where you stand, but also what you
can stand and understand. Which explains by those with an
over-investment in an emotional opinion "read into" things words and
references that do *not* exist in the original material.

That's not to say I disagree with your assessment with the Debian
Constitution - only that it's not remotely relevant to my comments.
Please don't shift the focus, I "assume" your intentions are best, but -
it's disingenuous, divisive, and does you no credit. Please retain focus.

I don't "see" how endless meta-semantic pedantics by
"Monday-footballers" has to do with a vote by Debian "developers".

What next?
Shall we debate gravity or other pointless exercises[*1] (unless the
Debian User list has become a school for aspiring sophists)?

[*1] Context is everything - and this *is* the Debian User list.

Kind regards
