Re: ftpmaster accepts packages that have been rejected a few days ago

Just to remind everybody, when there are several people filling a
single role and acting separately, it is important for all of them to
be on the same page. For example, I act as a co-maintainer for the
sfnet.* Usenet hierarchy (the major Finnish hierarchy) together with
another maintainer. Either of us can process newgroup requests but when
a request has been processed it will stay processed.

Granted, the decision space is much smaller (say a couple of dozens of
suggestions per year) than ftpmaster's decision space.

Of course, if it is clear to everybody that submitting a new package
to the fptmasters results in random behaviour and resubmitting a
REJECT is an accepted practice, then please ignore the above text :)
