All debian processes has been about advocacy and decision by people who have worked with new people. It was never about people who are unaware about the contributions. In this case, being the person who has worked close with them, I should have been the right person to decide. But it seems people who are totally uninformed wants to decide and just want to use their personal prejudice as the single deciding factor. I do not see this as sustainable and I will not approve any more requests in this team. if we, as a team are unable to follow the processes in line with the debian philosophy and spirit, I will remove myself as an admin from this team. I will not import any of these repos to alioth. Someone who relish authority and elitism has to do the extra work.
