    So what if they elect a lesbian project leader? It's 2014, get over it.

    I have not heard of Lucas Nussbaum or Neil McGovern before, but if retaining Lucas Nussbaum at the helm means Debian will continue to release what is IMO the best Linux server distribution out there, then there are no complaints from me.

      I worked at the same place as lucas in the past. Clearly he knows his stuff and knows to deal with complex situations. He did a lot for QA in Debian.

      I wholeheartedly agree. Also, McGovern puts the -Mc in Govern, so he's probably the man for the job.

        Alas Senator McGovern, in his counter-scientific war on fat, has probably killed more Americans than any war.

        Don't take the McGovern name as a true test of good governance.

    Debian never does anything that really jumps out at you. The more time passes, the more I appreciate that and realize how valuable it is. Gentoo and Ubuntu were cool for a while, but here it is 2014 and I'm back with Debian, same as 10 or maybe even 15 years ago.

    did they reveal the conclusion of their decision by sending white smoke up the chimney?

    • Pretty much, but there was no chimney, just Sid and a bunch of broken things being put out of their misery, and the magic smoke was blue.
