    Come out, come out wherever you are! (AKA DPL elections 2002)
    Posted on Thursday, March 07 @ 19:16:44 GMT

    Those of you who have spent the last year hibernating under a rock will be pleased to note that it is that time of year again, yes, the elections for the Debian Project leader are upon us. The nomination period has come to an end and the three nominees are Bdale Garbee, Raphaël Hertzog and Branden Robinson.
    The Debian consitution and electoral system is a fundamental part of Debian, if you are interested please read the constitution.

    Does anyone else see the irony in the "Tell them to RTFM or feed them to sendmail" taking first place in the current poll, and JoeBuck's remarks, echoed by the Anonymous posters here?

    "Nevertheless, Branden's lack of diplomacy and his habit of heaping abuse on people who ask him entirely legitimate questions suggests that he doesn't have the right personality for a leadership role. He'd be put in the position of answering questions from outsiders in the name of the Debian project, and many of these questions will be ignorant ones (from trade press reporters, for example). It's unclear whether he has the required patience, tact, and diplomatic skills."

    Does that mean that the Debian Project Leader should do as DebianPlanet readers say, and not as they do? 🙂
