I disagree, though I have answered them all the same.  I think there are
more important issues than who maintains what and how popular their
packages are, what kinds of bugs, etc.

I must admit I am not certain how to answer this.  Could you define the
scope a little?  I've worked a bit with others in discussions on policy
and I've tried to make my own packages follow policy as much as possible. 
I've also tried to work with those proposing changes to Debian beyond
changes within their own packages (archive changes, transition to FHS,
configuration management, that sort of thing) move from idea stage to
planning stages, being careful to make sure the changes proposed are for
the best.  I haven't been in much of a position to help the
implementation of these things yet for the most part, but I have helped
where I can.  Usually the best place I've been able to help is with
considering long term repercussions of implementation.

Is this not why we're all here?
