I have, IMO. I consider discrimination on the basis of sex to be sexism.
I've also described an incident of unchallenged racism on the
debian-women list. While I believe the particular incident to have
been dealt with, I don't think the setup has been changed to avoid
future problems yet.

You sound like a habitual contradictor. Aren't we good together?

I have obvious problems doing that independently and I'm unwilling
to join an group which discriminates against my heritage. I have
suggested some improvements before, but I feel some are willing to
paint any critics as like dangerous counter-revolutionaries,
no matter what their view.  Ulimately, I rank other barriers
ahead of debian-women in urgency given my capabilties.

I don't disagree much with your description of Jonathan Walther's
actions, except that I see the task group report as a way of
asking about the problems. He should have tried harder to ask
the appointees, of course.
