Re: [Debian account] I request your attention

Well, there may be other options.  But I am ticked at people
preventing qualified people from becoming Debian maintainers simply
because of a personal issue with them.  Applicants have a right to get
a decision and to have publicized reasons for it.

This model is used in numerous real-life bureaucracies where stalling
was used as a method of exercising a veto in ways that exceed
prescribed powers.

It greately annoys me that such a situation would be necessary.  It
has its drawbacks.  But it seems like we need something real and
tangible to deal with this problem.

Note: the 1 month value is subject to alteration, of course.
