This is MJR's FAQ about the situation between Sven Luther and the
debian-installer svn repository. Unfortunately, there are
currently more questions than answers.
Please see parent directory for contact details, disclaimer etc.
Last revised: 20 June 2006
1. What happened?
cobaco (aka Bart Cornelis) summarised to debian-project on 20 June 2006:
> the message regarding him resiging is , frans explains his reasoning for
> removing Sven in , and  is Sven's take on  (with a lot of context
> regarding when he send ).  has Sven explaining how he meant 
2. Was it unanimous?
AFAICT, some #d-i team wrote it was badly done and some offered
to support Sven's work on debian-boot (before this latest round,
anyway). A range of views is unsurprising, as d-i is a big team
IMO. 0 of 3 d-i *admins* have reversed it, which is the key fact.
3. What could happen next?
Time to find a different resolution, maybe from more comprehensible
mediation than telling people to "grow up". Unfortunately,
Sven Luther hasn't replied to  and four-fifths of the history
seems to be unlogged IRC, so it's hard to see any starting point.
4. Maybe from  we should conclude that d-i admins explaining some
technical reasoning which Sven Luther doesn't currently meet would
justify the lack of commit access and satisfy him, but would it?
