Then again the system is broken.  If second class applicants can be
expected to work through a sponsor while they wait, so can the
applicants working on the above packages.

I am free to have and voice my own opinion on the matter.  And it's
actually the Debian Developers' calls to make, if I understand things
correctly.  The DDs have the power to change this.  DPL is elected by

changed.  However, you seem to be perfectly happy with the situation as
it is.
