So a committee of those people would be nothing other than a sham?
Or are you trying to suggest that krooger hasn't learnt any lesson
from his past interactions with them? Are you unwilling to work in
any way with someone who you believe doesn't understand your view?

Can't help but agree that consultation would have been good and
I thank you and Erinn Clark(I think) for pointing out it hadn't
happened. Then again, the debian-women list members are very
prejudiced in my experience and many ignore people they don't
see as fellow travellers: would any of you have answered a
Request For Comments or Call for Volunteers from krooger, honestly?

Also, as we are so frequently reminded, the DPL can't push
anyone into doing stuff, at least constitutionally.

Depends if you put cushions or broken glass at the bottom.
