I think you misunderstood me, in some aspects of this discussion I very much
disagree with Raphael, while at some others I agree with him very much.
Or maybe you haven't ;)

in short: I think Debian should stay a project of volunteer work(ers) and
should not have paid staff. I also think that more people should be paid
by outside entities to work on Debian. And that more people should work
completly voluntarily on Debian!
