I don't see any problem with what Linus said and how he said it.
Watched the video. He was invited to come to engage the debian
community, and his style is well known. Debian could choose in future
not to invite him (or anyone who might not speak in a way that everyone
in the community likes) but I think it would be Debian who would be more
harmed by operating in an echo chamber. This is not the same thing as
enforcing a CoC on the mailing lists, and frankly I'm not convinced this
would have been a clear violation even there. He wasn't making dropping
in specifically to make distracting personal attacks, he was responding
to a specific question about *his own* motivations and expressing *his
own* beliefs that lead to him to act the way that he does. It would be
incredibly stupid and counterproductive for the project to invite
someone to candidly engage in discussion involving their own
motivations, then ban them because some of us don't like the answer.
