Other than not being a Debian Developer, I don't see any reason that Sven
Luther is not "the right person" here; and in cases of overriding a
Developer, the constitution doesn't actually say that the request has to
come from a Developer. So I would have to vote against this.
If we're going to go to the trouble of ruling on this bug at all, I'd much
rather it be discussed and we reach some kind of consensus, not just "we're
not doing anything on this bug for a variety of reasons."
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
