That's indeed what the constitution seems to say, but I think consensus
is a much better way of deciding on things, and the constitution does
not need to cover every single thing that happens in Debian.

Saying that no constitutional power has decided that way is simply
playing against the group in this case, I think. A consensus on a
specialized advisory forum is legitimate enough for me.

I would not like to see Debian turning into a over-bureaucratic
kafkanian organization.

See ya,
