How is the DPL empowered to take that decision when it is so obviously
against some developers' opinions?

Yes, instead of working as DPL to find a compromise, he yet again seeks
to direct debian funding away from debian's control and its established
partners. Even IMO-reasonable suggestions, such as goal-based rather
than time-based payments, seemed to be ignored.

If this DPL's best does not include revising his proposals or seeking
compromise, then it's time for a new DPL. This will get support for
more than the Dunk Tank reason.

I agree, the article inaccuracies are not a major reason to support
the recall, but it is likely to be the first of many if the DPL is
heading a debian proposal which has been taken outside the project.

When I asked for likely seconds for a recall a while ago (now
made obsolete by this proposal), I was surprised by the number of
French-sounding supporters. I myself am probably a francophile.
I wonder, is there something about this brash DPL which is particularly
un-French? One for the sociologists/anthropologists, perhaps?
