As DPL I will endorse whichever de facto committee already exists at
the time of my election.

An informal group of individuals has been in operation for some time
now, working quietly and effectively to remedy the perceived issues.
Your endorsement or otherwise will have no effect on this group, and
that is as it should be.

I'm glad you mentioned this.  An "informal group" "working quietly and
effectively" seems to lack accountability and public transparency.
Debian is about openness.  We have a strong commitment to justice and
democracy in all that we do.

If your goals are good, the perception of secrecy will do much to hinder
them, and cast your motives in poor and base terms in the minds of
onlookers.  A perception of secret doings will cast a cloud of mistrust
over Debian as a whole.

Conversely, favorable public advertisement and participation can only
help you prosper in your objectives, by supporting you with the assent
of the entire body of Debian.

God speed,


It's not true unless it makes you laugh, but you don't understand it until it makes you weep.
