It's absolutely fantastic. Each person has its own opinion about who has
the right to decide about this issue. Branden doesn't agree with you for
example (ie he doesn't think that it's up to Wichert to decide) ...

I really wonder why we have a constitution and a vote system if
it's not meant to be used... why do people fear using our (more or less)
democratic « tools » ?

Anyway, let's see Wichert opinion :

Wichert, as the channel founder, which policy should be applied on
#debian-devel ?

If you don't think that it's up to you to decide, what is the correct
way to decide the policy for the channel ?

I hope the operators (who are Debian developers) will accept Debian's
decision. Otherwise I really don't see why we have a constitution ...
