Aren't there also men, some shy, some merely put off by the roughness of this project, or many other reasons, who would welcome a warmer environment? I fully support debian-women as there is obviously demand for it. However, I often wonder why sets of problems are solved under a "superficial" label, when they really exist way further down the crust? Or: is the problem really sexism? Or is it just that the environment is not particularly friendly to women, who have different preferences for social interaction than men? If so, then why not solve the problem further down (through sensibilisation and competence to not answer every flamebait or take things personally in such public formums), rather than segregating the sexes explicitly? And most of the above applies -- to varying degrees -- to other classifications of the Debian supporters, be it language, ice cream favourites, or cdbs-vs-debhelper preference. -- Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list! .''`. martin f. krafft <firstname.lastname@example.org> : :' : proud Debian developer, admin, user, and author `. `'` `- Debian - when you have better things to do than fixing a system Invalid/expired PGP subkeys?
