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 :)
