Please explain how you reconcile this claim with the periodic announcements from the release team stating that Debian is currently missing key bits of architecture that prevent us from releasing sarge.
The OpenBSD six-month cycle is clear; if a new change is ready, it doesn't go in. Since we still have a previous stable release, the six month release cycle means our current stable release will be released as the new release if necessary. Including all possible updates that passed through testing, of course.
Please also elaborate on the conversations you've had with the release team, the porter teams, the installer team, the CD team, the stable release manager, and the security team that would warrant asserting that you as a DPL would be able to commit the project to a 6-month release cycle.
I committed to working toward a six-month cycle. As DPL, I have no desire to act unilaterally. Once a sufficient number of us are inspired with the right vision, things will just happen. As DPL, my job is to inspire-with-vision. And that is something I am good at.
Whatever my other flaws, you can be guaranteed that I will always listen to what you have to say.Please explain how you reconcile this statement with the fact that I have been assured by several people that you posted a copy of your IRC client's config file, showing that you are ignoring all comments from one of Debian's release managers.
Since every comment you've made about me on IRC for the past three years has been nasty, rude, and unpleasant, I put you on /ignore. But you will notice you were still able to email me. If you had picked up the telephone and given me a ring, I would have rewarded your effort. I find it sad that this email is the most civil communication I've ever recieved from you. Listening to people does not mean being a doormat for them. I don't get angry, and I don't hold grudges, but I certainly do tune out "noise". When the noise stops, listening resumes.
Complementing this, I am a gifted public speaker, pleasant, polite,and a keen listener.Please explain how you reconcile this claim with this quote from you on #debian-devel on irc.debian.org:<SirDibos> any woman wants another baby, I'll be happy to oblige. making babies is my specialty
The jokes one makes among friends are considerably different from the restrained tones of one adopts in civilized company. The activities of #debian-devel have always had the flavor of the wild west, not that of a bridge club. When in Rome, I do as the Romans do. Do you?
