Bug#750135: Status of #750135 (Maintainer of aptitude package)

Quoting Axel Beckert (abe@debian.org):

So do I. And I still have admin rights on aptitude on Alioth. Even
though I'm not that much active in aptitude's development.

Here's my proposal: 

- restore Manuel's commit rights
- have both me and Axel watch the aptitude-devel mailing list, not to
judge the technical validity of changes, but more following the
social aspects
- and see what happens...

It can't indeed be worse than the current situation anyway.

It can be done without "blessing" of the CTTE : after all, I'm admin
of the project, this was indeed granted to me by Daniel Burrows, the
original aptitude developer....precisely because he feared that him
becomign MIA would be an issue. And *I* am the one who granted Daniel
Hartwig admin rights *because* he was doing a very useful work to keep
aptitude development going on.

So, indeed, I think I'm legitimate enough to decide what is
best. Still, an advice from the CTTE wouldn't hurt.
