An Outreachy who was privileged to be in that discussion at DebConf has an 
unfair advantage over other candidates.

That is contrary to the values Outreachy claims to promote a level playing 

Women suffer from these disadvantages and lack of networks.  Outreachy promised 
to provide a fix for that.  Debian has short-circuited the process.  If posts 
are designed that way the Outreachy is redundant.

Nobody is claiming the woman did something bad.  The candidates are not 
expected to understand everything about the integrity of this process.  That is 
the mentors job.  It must be the men.  It's always the men and their money.
