Given the amount of communication that went on (one month I spend
~60h on the phone alone, talking to people about various debian
issues) three cases of misunderstandings seem quite neglectible.

I have been and will continue to listen carefully to people, be
friendly, honest and try to explain my motives and background
when suggesting something or asking questions.

I also asked native speakers or people with better writing skills
then I possess for advice and help. I will do so again in the
coming term.
