There is a long thread on debian-vote about this. I had the same
question and that thread did not really answer it for me.
My best guess yet is that this proposal is to tell DAM that we do not oppose
second-class Debian Developers with less privileges, so that they may add
second-class DDs in the hope that this will encourage more non-packagers to
become DDs (albeit then second class ones).
Did I guess that approximately right?
If not I'd like getting some more information, too.
