The above quotes email is another example of the ongoing smearing
campaign against Debian, so I have not replied to it previously.
However, I feel I need to reply to this now:

It was hopefully not just an experiment.

If you, Aron, feel the need to properly discuss Outreachy's benefits for
Debian, I propose to do that not over a mailing list, but in a BoF at
whichever DebConf, together with the people who actually take care of
Outreachy and GSoC, as well as with the Debian Diversity and (remains
of) the Debian Women team.

Oh, and to finish with, I know several Outreachy interns who still
contribute to Debian - I am one of them.


Please do not feed more trolls here. Thank you.
