I'm not sure whether or not there is consensus about whether behavior
outside of Debian should be used as input into deciding whether or not
to invite someone who is not a Debian developer to a Debian event, as
some have passionately advocated, but I doubt it will be productive to
try to argue this or other similar issues in the abstract, as opposed
to waiting until we have a specific case where the issues can be
argued with respect to the specific details and merits of that case.
