Steve Langasek: > I challenge anyone to do volunteer release management > for a project with Debian's size and complexity ... No. After seeing what Steve does, I'd sooner volunteer to spar with Darth Maul than to manage a release for a project with Debian's size and complexity. Sarge has as many binary packages as a World War II army division had soldiers, and as many Developers as the division had officers. In the Debian division, moreover, each individual soldier fills a unique, noninterchangeable role, and each officer is an unregimentable volunteer. When can our release manager say, "Transfer twelve artillery packages to the third brigade now; remind corps HQ that forty of our M-4 armor packages still need new rubber grommets; and tell <email@example.com> that if he doesn't take that ridge by noon, I'll relieve him of command!"
