If you like Debian, you should work for Debian... fini~~

I have one question, where you the guy who made the rude anti-semetic
comment in Bordeaux years ago when RMS and David Sugar and others were
having dinner?  The comment was essentially that Free Software was a
Jewish conspiracy.

Was that you?  I didn't know who was who at the table, but I recall
being shocked by the comments and it caused Philip Argian to pipe up and
say he was also Jewish.  It was a weird European moment.  It was the
first time I had encountered such European Anti-semetism before.  I've
seen it all to often since then.

Where is David Sugar?  He would remember.

If it was not you, I apoligize in advance.
