I don't know which project you've been part of, but this has always
been the case in Debian for me. There are certain individuals known

The only reason I am writing this is because -- in my impression --
DW's work causes more and more people to consider that the rest of
Debian as just a bunch of rough cowboys who don't place any value on
cooperation or getting along. With the addition of Ubuntu to the
scene ("humane Linux"), this becomes even worse.

And I really don't think it's the case. Debian has always been and
continues to be an amazingly cooperative project. Any project of
this size will come with black sheep, so there is nothing inherently
bad about the Debian project per se.

This is just my two cents. Please don't read criticism into this.
I've tried to formulate it as diplomatic as possible, but I am
running out of time.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
