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,





tiago

Daniel Lange, debian, debconf, aggressive, disrespectful

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.

  3. Geminispace/GemText/Gemini Protocol Turn 4 on June 20th

    Gemini is turning 4 this month (on the 20th, according to the founder) and I thought I’d do a spontaneous video about how I use Gemini, why it's so good, and why it’s still growing (Stéphane Bortzmeyer fixed the broken cron job — or equivalent of it — a day or two after I had mentioned the issue)



  4. HMRC Does Not Care About Tax Fraud Committed by UK Government Contractor, Sirius 'Open Source'

    The tax crimes of Sirius ‘Open Source’ were reported to HMRC two weeks ago; HMRC did not bother getting back to the reporters (victims of the crime) and it’s worth noting that the reporters worked on UK government systems for many years, so maybe there’s a hidden incentive to bury this under the rug

  21. [Meme] Makes No Sense for EPO (Now Connected to the EU) and Staff Pensions to be Tied to the UK After Brexit

    It seems like EPO staff is starting to have doubts about the safety of EPO pensions after Benoît Battistelli sent money to reckless gambling (EPOTIF) — a plot that’s 100% supported by António Campinos and his enablers in the Council, not to mention the European Union

  30. First Speaker in Event for GNU at 40 Called for Resignation/Removal of GNU's Founder

    It’s good that the FSF prepares an event to celebrate GNU’s 40th anniversary, but readers told us that the speakers list is unsavoury, especially the first one (a key participant in the relentless campaign of defamation against the person who started both GNU and the FSF; the "FSFE" isn't even permitted to use that name)
