I don't.  I think delegating a decision needs to be a bit more explicit than
that, it's my understanding that this was just AJ telling Sven what his
appeal options were.  He can of course clarify if he disagrees, but AFAICT
this is a case of Sven asking us to override the DPL.

The resolution is still in order, though.

suggest striking this and renumbering paragraph 4 as 3.

Suggest the following:


1. UPHOLDS the decision of the leader of the installer project and the
   Project Leader.

2. RECOMMENDS that the involved parties proceed as suggested by the Project
