I believe Anthony wanted to do this project as an example and to create
"momentum", at that time he wanted to do something like a project each
month. The project in itself doesn't require any DPL power, it's mainly a
matter of convincing ftpmasters (which he is part of) and implementing it.
It also required some coordination/discussion with the new-maintainer
team, but I don't believe that any blocker was there.

Anthony still managed several projects during the year. I expect the
number of "projects" to be multiplied by 2 or 3 if we're 10 times
