One of the freedoms I value is the freedom to choose what you spend your time on and who you spend it with. And while I’ve spent a lot of time arguing that people in key roles in Debian still have those freedoms (hey, 2.1(1), don’t you know), reality these days seems to be otherwise. But hey, solving that quandry just requires a mail to DSA.
To folks on the core teams I’ve been involved with: it’s been a pleasure and an honour working with you; if not always, at least mostly. Best of luck, and I hope y’all accept patches.
