2. The supporters page is still controversial
I have been pretty much reading most of this thread, but I probably have
missed a few things. I did think, though, it might be time to weigh in.
One suggestion that I have is that it might make sense to define
supporters rather broadly. For instance - there are women who may remain
simply debian users and not have the time or inclination to become
debian developers - and they could also be considered "supporters". It
isn't the same as having support from the debian community - but it is
an important source of support for the whole effort.
One thing I'd say, though, if there is anything that would have the
potential to turn any number of women away from this effort, it should
be avoided. Controversy is a normal, natural part of any sort of process
like this, but I'd say, err on the side of not alienating women.
