Re: Excessive wait for DAM - something needs to be done
Section 8 of the Debian Constitution reads in part:
8. The Project Leader's Delegates
The Project Leader's Delegates:
1. have powers delegated to them by the Project Leader;
2. may make certain decisions which the Leader may not make directly,
including approving or expelling Developers or designating people
as Developers who do not maintain packages. This is to avoid
concentration of power, particularly over membership as a
Developer, in the hands of the Project Leader.
The Delegates are appointed by the Project Leader and may be replaced
by the Leader at the Leader's discretion. The Project Leader may not
make the position as a Delegate conditional on particular decisions by
the Delegate, nor may they override a decision made by a Delegate once
Can we please have an explicit list naming the DPL's Delegates and listing
the powers delegated to each of them posted to debian-announce and on the
Web site? IMO every DPL should do this shortly after taking office.
AFAIK none ever has.
