You began your message commenting that people had contacted you encouraging
you to run for DPL.  These people are either ignorant of, or indifferent to,
Debian's constitutional framework.

Rather than correcting any possible misunderstandings on the part of these
individuals regarding your eligibility to stand for office, you are obliging
them by posting a platform to this public mailing list that implies that you
are a candidate for DPL, and directly misrepresents yourself as being a
Debian Developer, which is not a status that you hold.

You are clearly acting in bad faith.  If I were to guess at your motives, I
would presume you are playing to an audience of people who are not members
of the Debian Project, in order to bring pressure to bear on the project on
your behalf.

But whether that is your motivation or not, it is unconstructive to engage
in the substance of a platform that has been posted in bad faith.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
