I am not able to understand this, why are the packagers feeling
demotivated? what is the
current situation? Is there any way I can help?

I am interested because I am preparing for Debian MiniConf 2014 by
presenting remotely.

I'm sorry that was a clumsy summary of the situation (and probably should have been marked private, and the Debian packagers didn't actually ask for a position, I suggested it could be useful to maybe do a joint statement with other desktops and it turned out from the public discussion that followed to be unnecessary). I do think that it's been tough though the systemd/upstart discussion and with the default status of GNOME being questioned. In any case, I think we as a community could be more supportive of our Debian packagers who are doing a fantastic job! Thank you!
