Sadly not directly. The public stuff is too vague and
limited to the level of "Who cares?" about someone linking
krooger's message to him being a white christian male.

The reasoning was explained to me in private email by a
debian-women contibutor, I think a bit before trying to out it
in the above thread. Paraphrasing, I was told that I got a bad
response partly because I contacted the subproject soon after
krooger had (unsurprisingly, as it looks like he was replying to
the same mailshot) and partly from crass phrasing on my part. I
don't see why krooger's actions should affect my reception,
other than we share some attributes (and only some).

I hope that that contributor writes in public about this soon,
to help improve debian-women, but I don't want to "out" helpful
people. (Yes, I know I ought to check what stuff I was told in
public before posting about it. I apologise for it.)

Subscribed to this list. No need to Cc, thanks.
