  that's true.  and there is another problem : even if someone feels he
has sth to do, he has to be followed ;)

  it's obviously my point.  two many people have the same power in the
debian.  Then, you cannot find solutions to some problems, since when
two groups fights against the other, it's stuck.  The DPL cannot (and
IMHO has not to) be everywhere, and in any discussion.  Some
decentralization should be good I guess.
