OT: Re: debian-women obscurity, was: Clarification about krooger's platform

Sorry, this is definitely OT for -vote.  But I wanted to clarify the
follwing comment, which has been made repeatedly on this thread, incase
anyone is actually wondering about it.

MJ Ray wrote:

I think it's a problem that most of the points under how to
avoid being sexist haven't actually been done yet, while the
other is merely a worry.

For people who are confused, I believe that MJ Ray is referring to the
minutes of the Debian Women IRC meeting held on 16th Jan, which can be
found here:


Specifically note the "Third question" in the summary at the top.

There are four points.  Of those, three are being done already, namely
the first [1],[2] third [3][4][5] and fourth [6].  There are many other
such references on the Debian Women webpages and mailing list, as well
as wider Debian webpages and mailing lists - this is a selection of
initial information, rather than an exhaustive list.

How this can be interpreted as "most of the points under how to avoid
being sexist haven't actually been done yet" is beyond me.
