Is anything to be fixed with the three-month analysis, or is it just to

krooger to work on it, if I'm being trusting.

Nothing is perfect on the first attempt.  By publishing something
quickly, we provide a basis for further research and study.  After a two
month period of public comment, the stakeholder committee would have
another month to update their official document.

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

Debian already has a debian-women mailing list for discussing such
issues.  This indicates there is are real and widespread concerns among
Debian members which have not been addressed yet.

Hopefully with more focused attention, a definite timeline, and official
standing, the concerns can be articulated in a way that makes it easier
to discuss and implement solutions.

It is important that Debian not exclude anyone who has a valuable
contribution to make.
