 So, did the Debian Project Leader take the decision to fund our RMs,
 for example with Debian's money?  Did he take the decision to
 officially request funding?     NO.

 Instead, he did his best to take off his DPL hat, make a private
 initiative which is directed towards helping Debian, without the need
 of any DPL special power.

 What does he get for trying his best to gather more support for Debian?
 A "let's fire the DPL" GR.

 Why on earth are you giving a shit to some random broken article?

 Would you read an article claiming that Debian buys Ubuntu stock and
 then call the leader a fraud?  What if the article would claim that KDE
 is sluggish in Debian?

 I'm deeply disappointed by the french cabal supporting this DPL
 bashing.  Please do feel responsible for the fate of the project after
 such a stupid vote.
