Some of my suggestions have been accepted previously. Damned
if I can find the right bug tracker entries for them, though.
This is a lower priority than some other tasks (package review
and upload, for example) and I feel progress is impeded by some
irrational or uncommunicative people. For example, "Searching
for Safety Online" (which recommends "pro-active interventions")
has been used to justify the debate-killing silence policy in
the List FAQ, which seems just plain broken.

So, I have not contributed for some time.  There are more
welcoming and encouraging parts of the project which also need
help. I call on the debian-women leaders to make it welcoming
and rebalance tolerance, but here I'm really interested in what
the DPL candidates would do about topics this raises, if anything.
