I agree we should try to broaden the reach of our team, and that some
diversity would help. However, I don't think it should be expected for
DebConf Content to be representative of all of Debian; it should
basically be formed IMO of people that:

- Have a good feeling of what DebConf is usually like, and want to
  help shape it

- Enjoy reading and deciding on things they might only half-understand
  (but for which they understand the relative position and importance
  for the project)

I do not agree with this point. Of course, having a DPL in the team
would be quite nice, but... It should not be required for a DPL, as he
has enough tasks as it stands, and it should not be required from the
team, as it could undermine or "tilt" its decision-making ability.

Anyway, would want to write more, and to polish what I've written, but
gotta run... Continue later!
