It is. At the same time, I think that we can increase the number of DDs
who want to sponsor or review packages by asking nicely on debian-devel
and making this list more fun to be on.
Well it would be definitely useful having better tracked package reviews
and problems found on earlier upload, so that it is clearly visible if
there are still some not fixed issues.
That makes sense. We can solve that through some technology, like "REVU"
I'm running out of cycles to maintain more technology, so instead I will
try to reconfigure the expectations on the mailing list so that mentees
know what to expect. So mentees -- if you think you've solved the problems
raised on the list, and you think someone should upload it, but no one did
-- reply within the thread four days later to say that your expectations
have been broken. (-:
