I *do* miss the vigorous discussions, or at least discussions....

IMHO, it does *no more* meet my "needs". DW had a huge consequence by
helping in getting a kind of "generation" of new contributors in
Debian and more involved in Debian.

But now all these are involved enough....and no more have time for or no
more give time to the DW project. Not a criticism, just a fact...

In the same time, those who did their best to help this (/me looks
self and a couple of other men in Debian) have turned their attention

So, we're at a quite critical moment:

-the project can slowly die

-some early contributors can give a few more of their time and propose
new ways to revive it (tutorials, documentation writing, other

-new contributors jump in by themselves, speak, and start a new DW
generation with the help of former generations

IMHO, the only viable option is the second one. The third one will not
happen alone. And the first is not an option..:-)

Tough question. And being a little bit provocative, I would answer "no".

>  Do you think it is still needed to encourage the involvement of women?

I personnally think so, yes.
