Re: Is NEW processing on hold? (was: Question for candidate Towns)

There is no reason given there. Let me quote:

|- most processing of the NEW queue has of late been done by a single
|ftpmaster, who has not been actively doing NEW processing this year.  I
|don't know the reason, and haven't asked; I assume that he has succumbed to
|real-world time constraints, and that the other ftpmasters are aware of
|- another ftpmaster has been moving house this month, with much of the usual
|network-related pain and anguish that goes with it.
|- the ftpmasters are generally aware that there is a manpower problem here,
|as some consideration has been given to a candidate for augmenting the
|existing team.  I don't know if there is currently a timeline for confirming
|him as an ftpmaster, or what steps lie between now and final approval, but
|the ftpmasters have certainly not been sitting idly by waiting to be flamed
|before taking action.

This is basically a "no information is available".

I find it notable that this "bits from foo" is the first article of
that kind I have ever read that was not being posted by a member of
the foo team.

IMO, this actually _proves_ the case that ftpmaster is one of the
biggest problems that Debian has at the moment, now that the DAM
problem has been solved elegantly and efficiently.
