The debian-private mailing list leak, part 1. Volunteers have complained about Blackmail. Lynchings. Character assassination. Defamation. Cyberbullying. Volunteers who gave many years of their lives are picked out at random for cruel social experiments. The former DPL's girlfriend Molly de Blanc is given volunteers to experiment on for her crazy talks. These volunteers never consented to be used like lab rats. We don't either. debian-private can no longer be a safe space for the cabal. Let these monsters have nowhere to hide. Volunteers are not disposable. We stand with the victims.

forwarded message from Matthew Bailey

I'm afraid I don't know what's going on here, but following a `talk'
conversation with Matt Bailey it seems clear that we have had some
major communication problems.  How come the decision to set up was made without anyone checking for a response from
him ?

It is now the 30th of January - the 1st of February is two days away.

Well bruce already sent it to me....

We have a definate problem....
If the use of the debian group leaves this machine (ie my desk machine)
I lose it and we lose everything I have fought for up to this point.
The machine is the largest Pentium in the department and the faculty are 
begging for a Oracle server. If the debian people leave the machine and 
it trottles figure about a 25 limit connection on the 16meg 486-66 that 
will be comming this way.

I am not at all trilled that this has happened without the knowledge of 
myself or david. So unless something is resolved soon one way or the 
other you might as well look at and comming 
offline on or about Feb 1st because once the word gets out you can kiss 
this machine goodbye....

PS. I am not in anyway against the idea of at all I 
actually think it is a good idea. But none the less there will be a small 
recussion on the blind side. Also, with the way the netscape server works 
in the current config, mirroring is next to impossible. (in fact if I 
would have known this this afternoon when my /usr/local/* got blown away 
and I spent all day fixing it I would have just powered down the machine 
then instead of worring about the mail that was bouncing......

PPS. I do this work for debian for fun and so does david. Neiter one of 
use even use debian on our machine mainly because it doesn't even run 
well on them. This is mainly do to the hardware that we have and not hte 
operating system. FreeBSD seems to be the current staple of the 
department, this would have been different IF debian would have been 
released when they said it would, but since I do not maintain software 
(mainly because my only access to a machine was Ian M's and that went 
away) I didnt feal it manditory for me to whine over the date. When the 
delay went all summer we had to come up with something for this last fall 
which was freebsd.(then again mainly hardware problems)

I put this in terms of "they" it is not anyone's fault about the delay in 
the release. 

PPPS :) I know you hate me by now. I am in the middle of building 
debian-sparc now and hope to have something useable by summer.

PPPPS by the way do you want to know the statistics of the ftp site :) 
well I will tell you anyway. over the past 6months we have transfered 
949Gigs of nothing but debian files. Now take a pair of T1's and put that 
with 15,000 email users and you can see where all the bandwidth has gone :)
