If anyone thinks this GR will actually achieve anything positive,
If anyone thinks that trying to decide technical issues through voting
is a good idea, I pity them.
If anyone thinks that they can insult people as much as they like
and that the people they insult still have some obligation to respond
to them, they're entirely mistaken.
If anyone thinks "$foo doesn't communicate with $bar" == "$foo doesn't
communicate", they're being at best disingenuous.
If anyone thinks that abusing debian-devel-announce or GRs is the best
(or indeed "only") way to force through their pet issue, they're very
