My proposal was intended to be straightforward, to answer a simple
question: "whether the [Dunc] organisation can be sufficiently
"outside" of Debian when the DPL is intimately involved."
It obviously failed, many people got it wrong.
But I do not understand why people keep writing proposals by mixing
different items, some of them being divisive. For instance, your
proposal embeds several statements:
a. Debian supports its DPL.
b. Debian blesses the Dunc project.
c. Debian and Dunc are two distinct bodies.
In my proposal, I deliberately avoided to say anything in favor of
or against Dunc, because we gain nothing with such a statement.
If it fails, this will also become a Debian failure, If it succeeds,
well, this will also be good for Debian.

It has a better chance of success if it is proposed by someone who is
seen as supporting this experiment. Given the heated reactions, I
doubt that I am the adequate person.
