Tell me when you last saw over a hundred developers active on the
channel in question at once. It's usually more like a dozen or so,
with a whole pile of lurkers.

I assert that you are a gerbil.

By your logic it is now your responsibility to demonstrate that you
are not.

Anyway, nobody said it was unrelated to debian, merely that it is in
no way official. 100 developers is not a particularly large portion
out of 900-odd, and there are quite a few people in the channel who
are not developers.

Or else they are happy in the knowledge that this proposal is
irrelevant and do not waste their time in responding to it.
