I am not ins the habit of sending personal email to people
when talking about Debian issues. I have asked your fellow committee
member, don Armstrong, frequently over the last month or so on IRC,
as well as asking the DPL in the same forum. Niether had anything
concrete to report --nor, as I can see, do you, apart from the
unwavering belief that it shall all work out in the end.
Nothing has changed in the last 6 months.
