I'm a nm too and I agree with you and others who think accounts aren't candy. I think a nm have to show before his interesting in debian development and his skills by working under sponsor. Then, when DAM think he is a good element and usefull for debian him can have accounts.
I'm waiting from june 1999 but I've only contacted DAM to know if he forgot me, he said me "not at all I'm so busy". So I think I'm not already able to be debian maintainer, when I'll be I'll have accounts. Finally I'll don't stop to work for debian, I can wait and package, fix an write docs under sponsor. Now I'm working on some packages: genesis, openvrml, meshio and 3dwm, all under sponsor. So have'nt accounts isn't a problem but is true can be a little slowly than have own accounts. For now I've found good sponsor and I thak them very much.
P.S. I hope this flame end and peoples understand acounts can be dangerous, them aren't candy, so any nm has to be worthy to have accounts.
Bye and thank very much every sponsor!
