delegation for the Policy Editors

Dear project members,

Great news: after doing great work during the last year, Jonathan Nieder
has agreed to officially join the Debian Policy team. I am therefore
updating this delegation.

The task description is unchanged from the previous Policy Editors
delegation (http://lists.debian.org/20121017195148.GA26024@upsilon.cc).

For more information about the Debian Policy team, have a look at the
team page: http://wiki.debian.org/Teams/Policy


Policy Editors delegation

I hereby appoint the following developers as Policy Editors:

- Andreas Barth  (aba)
- Bill Allombert (ballombe)
- Charles Plessy (plessy)
- Jonathan Nieder (jrnieder)
- Russ Allbery   (rra)

Any previous Debian Policy delegation, not explicitly listed above, is
revoked. The delegation is not time-limited. It will be effective until
further changes by present or future DPLs.

Task Description

The Debian Policy team is responsible for maintaining and coordinating
updates to the Debian Policy Manual and all the other policy documents
released as part of the "debian-policy" package.

The Debian Policy Editors:

- Guide the work on the Debian Policy Manual and related documents as a
  collaborative process where developers review and second or object to
  proposals, usually on the debian-policy mailing list [1].

  [1]: https://lists.debian.org/debian-policy/

- Count seconds and weight objections to proposals, to determine whether
  they have reached sufficient consensus to be included, and accept
  consensual proposals.

- Reject or refer to the Technical Committee proposals that fail to
  reach consensus.

- Commit changes to the version control system repository used to
  maintain the Debian Policy Manual and related documents.

- Maintain the "debian-policy" package. As package maintainers, they
  have the last word on package content, releases, bug reports, etc.
