And the DPL told that Sven could go to the Tech Ctte.

Well, I read the "you can go to the tech ctte" as a delegation by the

Except if the DPL delegates it to us.

So, I propose the following decision:


1. Sven Luther complains that he has been deprived of commit access to
   debian-installer's svn repository after he stepped back as installer
   powerpc maintainer.

2. The Debian Project Leader has decided to uphold this particular
   decision of the debian-installer project head.[1]
3. Access controls to source code repositories are not something in the
   regular domain of the Technical Committee.  However, in this case the
   decision was delegated by the Project Leader to the Technical
   Committee as appeal instance of the Project Leader's decision.

4. Cooperation between Sven Luther and the installer team can also
   happen via patches sent to the bug tracking system.


1. The decision of the installer project head and the Project Leader is
   upheld by the Committee.

2. We recommend the involved parties to work as suggessted by the
   Project Leader.[1]
