LXer: Debian developer loses privileges due to offensive post


Published at LXer:

Debian developer Josselin Mouette has had his privileges of posting to the announcement mailing list for developers withdrawn, following an offensive post to the list in November. Debian Project Leader Steve McIntyre told iTWire that after Mouette's "abuse of the ability to post to the d-d-a mailing list, I asked our mailing list administrators to remove that privilege for in future." Following the post on November 23, at least two Debian women developers indicated they were reconsidering their participation in GNU/Linux project.

[Looks like it finally got the attention of the brass at Debian. - Scott]
