You misunderstood my second point: you already knew that Branden was
running when drafting your plateform, so you could have incorporated this
in your plateform instead of the rebuttal. This way, you give a
chance to Branden to address it in his own rebuttal.  

Restricting rebuttals to what is in the plateforms of others candidates
is a common practice in this kind of process, and I think Debian should
adopt it.

I note that you are not worried to harm SPI by using involvement in SPI
as a negative point, thus discouraging people to get involved.

Imagine a large red swirl here.
