These people do not 'own' these jobs, do they? I would say that debian
as a project should decide if help is needed or not. Based on some
objective measure of 'doing the job' of course. Sometimes it can be
really obvious to his peers that somebody is swamped in work, but the
person can't see this. I'm not saying that this is what's happening
here. I'm just saying that in a big project it shouldn't be the just guy
doing the job who decides if he's doing a good job.
