I'm not trying to bash Ben. He did a wonderful work in resolving many
bugs and generally keeping up-to-date with the CVS and builds of
all architectures which is a difficult job. My suggestion is another:
give packages multiple developers and have a more formal way for others
to evaluate bugs... It wouldn't be wrong to have at least 2 developers
especially for important packages.
