Re: Very uneven distribution of packages per maintainer

I think your stats are wrong, at least they are different from

Not necessarily -- some packages are a lot of work, like xfree, glibc,
apache, some are a decent amount of work, like mailman, cvs and some
are close to zero work, like chrpath and xslide.  People also have
different amounts of time available -- those who are paid to do Debian
maintainence at work will have more time than somebody who works 12
hours/day without any Debian work in there, etc.

So, why do you think having a more even distribution is a good thing?
Or rather, why is the current situation so bad?
