Thanx. That sounds like a fine plan to me. Can someone (elmo?) confirm that
this is what is going to happen, and we (debian-arm) don't need to be
working on any backup plans? (I don't want to find out again in another
month that this is not the DSA-sanctioned approach).
Presumably two developer-boxes would actually be a good idea, by way of
having a backup (and as none of them are very fast). We could use Bill
Gatliff's, or Steve could host one provided by Vince. I don't care, but I do
want to be sure everyone involves knows what's agreed. Does debian-admin
agree that a second box is good, or is this a maintenance overhead they
would prefer to be without?
