We can only wonder, why was this posted to the debian-private (leaked) gossip network and not to LWN?



Subject: [Daniel Lange] Do some public considerations for newmaint application, good way to proceed?

Hi all,

I've supported a few applications in the newmaint list and I never objected one. With Daniel Lange's declaration of intent I feel for the first time the need to publically do some considerations, but I don't know the best way to proceed. I'd like to make it clear that his behavior in some situations in the past are not welcome in Debian. At the same time I don't want to start a noisy thread in there.



I witnessed aggressive and disrespectful behavior from Daniel against a person very close to me, both written and in person, during Debconf15. As he was not a member/whatever of the Debian community I decided to let it go. Besides that, I think he was quite harmful during the storm against the Debconf chairs. But it may be more a personal opinion.



I'm aware that he's doing a lot of work for Debconf and I'm not objecting to his application. But I'll just feel bad if I say nothing at this time.


Any suggestion on how to act will be appreciate on such situations.


Bests,

This shows a pattern in Debian: people who do a lot of visible work, such as DebConf organizers and Debian Account Managers, can behave like bullies and it is tolerated.



In fact, despite these reservations, Daniel Lange was being welcomed into Debian in exactly the same month that Jacob Appelbaum was being publicly humiliated for falsified cases of harassment. It is an incredible contradiction.



People who do invisible work, such as quietly assisting victims of harassment from leadership figures like Molly de Blanc, get no recognition at all.



Do you have evidence about Daniel Lange? Please contact the Debian Community News Team.
