This is the main point that I want to discuss. The above method,
which I also proposed several days ago, is the most practical,
efficient and reliable solution, I believe.
Official maintainers of Debian JP have already much information on
the reliability, ability and identity of the candidates from Debian JP
through their activity in Debian JP. So he can communicate much more
details on a phone call with candidates and if necessary he can
report the results to members of new-maintainer with e-mail which is
much easier than with a phone call for Japanese.
But members of new-maintainer team in (for example) the U.S. get such
information only through a phone call which may result short on substance
because of language problem.
Which is more reasonable ?
