But they don't move fast enough or often enough.  While -devel is
*supposed* to be about technical discussions only, this regularly does
not happen.  Because people continually fail to adhere to this,
debian-devel can be far worse than p5p.  Getting real work done in
that environment is next to impossible, a problem bemoaned on
debian-devel on a regular basis and the reason the other lists exist
at all.
