I might resume helping with these DebConf systems. I would really like
to help. But, I don't want to end up feeling like I'm pouring my time
down the drain. I'm trying to decide if DebConf is still where I want to
put my time or if I should look for some other part of Debian where I
can be of use.
I need more information on the health of debconf-team and subteams as a
whole before I can commit.
I need some assurance that if we go the wafer route for dc16, that the
wafer team won't evaporate post-DC16 the way the summit team did
Probably the relevant people are too busy running and being a part of
DC15 right now to address these concerns. So, I guess we'll see where
things are in a few weeks ...
Put me down as "on the fence" or whatever.
