Re: [New maintainer] Working for Debian and becoming a registere

Excuse me for not being terrible informed about all the political
intracacies of Debian - I'm not terribly interested in them, being
more concerned with hacking on cool free software. However, I'm
finding myself in a position of not understanding how it came to pass
that this was just 'decided'.  I mean, we vote on things like the
logo... and yet something as momentous as closing Debian just happens?
I guess if it were "temporary, until we can vote on it" it might be
one thing, necessary to expedite something deemed important to have
carried out in a timely manner, until such time as it could be decided
by vote, but - the duration is apparently "until the next release",
which as many Debian people may know, might be a bit...

So, to borrow a phrase, what's the deal with that?
