What, Evolution?  Would you mind filing some bugs when you run into
problems (if you haven't stopped using it)?


Sorry for the difficulty.  We'd love to help you fix your user
experience problems.  Perhaps you could meet us on IRC and discuss in
real-time?  I think the primary devs are in and around India these days,
so adjust your phase accordingly.

Well, some folks use Debian in their work, and would not have a job
unless Debian worked smoothly... so, although they're not being paid
*directly*, one could argue that they are in fact Debian shills.

I don't think they are being pad to *work on Debian* so much as being
paid while they work on Debian ;)
