So, to compensate for electing bad leaders (people who are too
nice to lead are bad leaders, generally), we put all kinds of nasty in
a GR for them to beat the developers with? And have plausible
deniability "look, I am am really nice, but those nasty developers made
a GR to make me do this"?
I am not sure I like the sound of that.
People who can't see that all powers in Debian flow from the
constitution, are too nice or tremulous o delegate people to core
teams, who can only delegate when they feel blessed by the holy pee of
this GR, are going to be a disaster anyway, and perhaps we should not
make such people even marginally effective by having this GR.
If they can't lead, perhaps they _should_ be wrapped in cotton
wool and prevented from taking any action at all.
