Hi Danese,

Could you explain what you meant in this comment:

"It's the classic, 'Are we going to talk about the relationship again?'"
Cooper said in response to an audience question, prompting laughter and
applause. "That's what Debian Women is about -- can we figure out a way
to talk?"

It's not really clear to me what that means and I'm not sure that the
last bit is actually consistent with DW's goals, so any clarification
would be much appreciated.
