  Up to the point when the project will take a decision over his
packages that he won't be able to fight or discuss. I don't think it's
in the project interest to feature such ivory towers.

  Debian should be about users and working together, the more I see
arguments in favor of DM the more it's about introverted geeks, and
uncoordinated work. Maybe we should care more about people that are nice
to users rather about introverted guys that do not care about the rest
of the world, shouldn't we ?
