mutt -f =debian-devel -e "push Dhot-babe<enter>"

I gave up reading the hot-babe thread shortly after it descended into
discussing the crusades. To me, the whole discussion has failed to
mention the more interesting question of whether the package is
useful and if we want Debian to be full of silly pointless packages.
I know traditionally if someone was willing to maintain a package and
it was DFSG-free then it accepted into the archive. But now sarge
doesn’t even fit on a DVD anymore we have to start asking ourselves
“Just how many media players/irc clients/load meters/menstrual
calendars do we need in Debian?” Maybe it is time someone went
through the archive, looking at the orphaned, unmaintained and
trivial packages and ask “Do we really need this package?”

One thought on “mutt -f =debian-devel -e "push Dhot-babe<enter>"

  1. Just let ’em rot. You don’t put out a full sarge on CD, DVD anyway – just the popularity-contest winners. It’d take AGES to sort through the packages and the arguments would be endless. Until the mirrors really insist, use your time more wisely.
