Distressingly, I find that people in this discussion seem to
have the attitude that in some way people are obligated to feed them
information about votes, policy changes, etc, and that they have a
right to be involved in everything Debian does.
This is a voluneteer organization. Voting is not a right. It
is part of the work that is done to make Debian better (by making
informed choices). Like any other work, this requires getting
involved. It is not as if the information is hidden.
It is also perfectly OK not to have either the time or the
inclination to be involved in this extra work. Nothing is forcing you
to do this. People who vote and work on -legal or -publicity are
choosing to get involved. No body is presenting them things on a
The Web pages and the developers reference mentions the
mailing list file (publically available) that tells you what the
mailing lists are all about.
Description : Announcements of development issues like policy
changes, important release issues &c.
Moderated : no
The information is there. It is merely not being spoon fed.
Your mode of life will be changed for the better because of good news
