LXer: Debian secretary quits over Lenny release vote

Published at LXer:

Long-time developer Manoj Srivastava has resigned as the secretary of the Debian GNU/Linux Project and is thinking of leaving the project altogether. In a message posted to one of the project mailing lists, Srivastava said he had taken the step of quitting the post of secretary due to the dissatisfaction over the options offered in a recent vote about the release of the next version of Debian, Lenny. The voting process ends on December 21.

It was an idiot ballot ... obviously designed to force a conclusion desired by ... somebody, I'm not sure who. The conclusions most "Debian-like" would obviously have slowed down the Lenny release considerably and may powerful developers are not willing to accept that.
