Re: An alarming trend (no it's not flaimbait.) (fwd)
Seems to me that we came up with a solution for this problem a while
ago: the Debian QA team. Right now it has eight people, and an
overwhelming workload. I think a QA team is the right thing here;
presumably it can have the discussions about whether particular
packages are so stale they should be removed.
But I suspect that eight people is nowhere near enough people. Maybe
I could join... Indeed, maybe the problem would go away if everyone who
has posted a suggestion in this thread joined the QA team and started work.
Maybe we need a way to make being on the QA team a sexy job, just like
maintaining glibc or the kernel or X is.
