Hmm, wouldn't it be a bit wiser to tell the AMs to thoroughly TEST the applicant wrt his/her goals, plans, etc? Isn't that what the NM process is all about? Aren't you saying that you don't trust AM are doing their job (i.e. CHECKING SUITABILITY OF A PERSON TO _BECOME_ A PART OF DEBIAN)? If you are worried about proliferation of Debian machines, just make the NM process tighter, harder, more troublesome - it will filter out all wannabe hackers, warez traders, script kiddies, loonies, Bugs Bunny and whoever else. And let those who pass the NM process be _full_ members of the project. And, yes, if you think the NM process should be changed to be more PITA I agree to wait for it and reapply :) marek -- Visit: http://caudium.net - the Caudium WebServer /* A completely unrelated fortune */ Glee Club groupie, n.: A girl into choral sex.
