A strained suggestion at best. A promise from SPI to pay is not the same as a
check in hand. My Mom doesn't read spi-private. Worst case scenerio, I did
not run into my Mom's office and shout "they paid!" the second I read
It mostly indicates that Branden did not copy my Mother on his message
announcing payment. Otherwise, why would he write her?
In any case, my beef is that he is publicly talking about the incompetence of
my organization for totally unsubstantiated reasons. That's bad behavior.
Even more so since my organization is a long-time, reliable and well behaved
donor and supporter of the Debian project. If this is how Branden treats
friends I'd hate to see how he treats enemies.

Because his performance and behavior as SPI Treasurer continues to be the
single best criteria to measure his ability to function as DPL.
Remember that Anita's inquiry was totally private. IRC is public and IRC
discussions about my organization should and do concern me. Branden is the
one who continues to publicly antagonize me on this topic for no apparent
reason. I am discussing it on this list because his behavior reflects on his
suitability as a candidate.
