This is probably especially true of Debian where pretty much everything
is done in a very loose, ad hoc fashion. There is very little pressure
to officially affiliate with Debian or do any particular kind of
organisation so you end up with lots of overlapping groups with
differing levels of awareness of each other and often with differing
ideas about how things should be done.
