Re: Tech stuff on d-women (Was: errors building a .deb)

Even in case my answer just being another "me too": I would love to see
those questions here, for various reasons:
Hmmm... I kinda like seeing tech stuff on d-women, especially from other
women - it's encouraging. But I can see your point about d-mentors being
a bigger pool.
What do others think?
- Learning more about $stuff "by accident" might actually encourage some
of us lurkers to finally try ourselves. Those who aren't actually planning
to package will not subscribe to $debian-mentors.
- Having seen others struggling with $stuff, is encouraging since one
doesn't feel so awfully stupid when trying oneself and not suceeding right
to begin with (this really is important for women since we often tend to
blame ourselves instead of those who have done the bad job that now is
making trouble for us).
-Debian Women should, in my opinion, have quite a technical focus. Don't
move technical discussion out of here to those places that often are
perceived to be discouraging to women. You'll end up with the status quo
we already see everywhere.
