I'll add my "Me too" here as well. I think I'm in favour of the Debian
Foundation (although I'd like to be more informed about this). But I'm
definitely NOT in favor of co-opting the DPL election to vote for it,
because you dislike GRs.  I intend to vote for you below NOTA because of
this reason, not because I don't think exploring the Debian Foundation idea
is worth the time.

How can we tell you that we do want to explore the Foundation idea, but we
don't want to have a DPL that's not taking care of the rest of the DPL
responsibilities? I want a DPL that sets a vision for the project, that
helps developers find a common cause for collaborating and moving the
project ahead. It doesn't seem that this is your goal and so I don't feel
comfortable voting for you above NOTA.
