GR proposal: DPL title
-----BEGIN РGР SIGNED MESSAGE-----
We all know how vital but thankless task DPLs do. It wastes the time such a
person could do coding, pretending to maintain packages, arguing about the
codename for Salsa replacement, calling Lennart's mom names, or stalling
package reviews so they can be adequately tested (game packages take
especially long to search for bugs). The vast majority of us are technical
people, thus we'd rather do any of the above instead of exercising our
non-existant people skills to deal with RL bureaucracies, manage project
financies or do the rest of boring stuff.
Yet sometimes we manage to find a person that can be suckered into doing DPL
work. It would be good to _somehow_ recognize all this effort, so such a
person is less likely to run away when pushed to the front of the line when
the time for DPL re-nomination comes.
I'm therefore proposing the following General Resolution:
=== BEGIN GR TEXT ===
Title: Refer to the DPL per "Your Majesty".
The proper form of address for currently reigning DPL shall henceforth be
=== END GR TEXT ===
This particular title is especially fitting as the current and next has a
deep-seated hatred of nobility, with statements such as:
> We can surely reference "kings", etc. ironically and with a degree of
and with tendencies such as:
> I solved this by making sarcasm my default mode.
Thus, such an elevating title would let us express respect both in literal
words and sincere meaning, yet we'd still get to taunt this particular
person by having him believe, hoisted on his own petard, that we're only
. Technically, for now only the sole candidate, but, as discussed before,
you'd need to be a complete clown to blow an unopposed election, and we
already know lamby to be an incomplete clown.
17:42 < infinity> ron: I'm sure we'd happily elect a literal clown (giant
shoes and honking nose inclusive), but I'd like to think
we'd avoid electing a metaphorical clown.
