This is true, but it is also unclear how one would go about
volunteering for the jobs in question.  Indeed, it's not clear who
chooses who does these jobs.  I know how one becomes the maintainer of
a package.  There are several ways, all well documented and easily

How does one become an ftpmaster or release manager?  How were the
current ones chosen?  Do they simply choose their successors?
