I think you're overgeneralising and misreading:

- Can you please explain the contact you have had with Gloria Steinem
and Germaine Greer to confirm that they haven't been consulted?

- Is anything to be fixed with the three-month analysis, or
is it just to get some "first steps" recommendations? The DPL
term is only twelve months, so I guess the arbitrary length is
to give some time for krooger to work on it, if I'm being

Actually, I do share your reservations about good/bad faith on
this, but you do no good by spinning krooger either.

I'm a lot more worried that the topic is an platform issue in
this way. Why should the sex imbalance be seen as any more
urgent than race, culture or any of the other tons of ways
debian is demographically different? Is it a "put up or shut up"
directed at that list of people?
