    Looking trough these pictures I cannot but come to the harsh conclusion that Debian development is a male-dominated world. Look at

    http://www.ucc.gu.uwa.edu.au/~james/2001/conf-1.deb/5th-day/preview-114-1434_IMG.JPG.html

    for example. It’s like a “Where’s Waldo’s girlfriend” picture.

    Seriously, why are there so little women working at these projects? I don’t think that it has anything to do with the abilities of women. Maybe it’s because so much development is done in spare/free time and women generally like the idea of spending their free time behind a computer less than men.
