One reason why I promote Debian is because of its politics. It is democratic
in its own way. There is an eligibility criteria to be met before being
given developer status. Then the corresponding elections for position of
Debian leader. Fixed period of functioning. Distribution of
responsibilities. Procedure to recall a leader if the majority feel that
that functionary is not fit.

Now in the FSF-I we have people who claim to be my leader.
