This single sentence is quite ambiguous to non-native english speakers.

At the first glance I interpreted the sentence as
 "This will only lead to flamewars"
due to the meaning of bikeshed[1].

However, I got a hint from a fellow developer and learned that
"Bikeshed" has its own meaning under Debian's context, according
to some old mailing list fragments[2][3] -- which refers to a
dak feature (This is the first time I heard of such thing).

This supports my (thus far) private feeling that naming this initiative
"Bikeshed" is a bad idea.
