So what are you saying then, that my example was not good enough? ;)

Besides joking, I understands your frustration.  Luckily those examples,
both mine and yours, are just some of the everyday problems that Debian
has to solve as part of its growing up and moving on.

I think those are areas where we should focus our efforts, but I think
that creating conspiration theories outside of debian-curiosa is not the
best way.

A better way, I think, could be starting to collect and organize facts,
so that the same things are not discussed over and over again.

Is there, for example, a reasoned wiki page with, say, the TODO-list of
reasons why pure64 thing is still a mess?  Or a wiki page with the
reasoned TODO-list of reasons why we aren't doing source-only uploads?

That can be used to remember shouters of the problems still to be solved
before shouting again, and to remember the shouted what problems have
already been solved and that the shouters are not only shouting.
