I'm very unhappy, about your answers and this whole thread in general.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not accusing you of anything.

But the atmosphere in the thread is tense and full of misunderstandings.
With every mail it becomes clearer that we're all miles away from
actually making plans and discussing concrete specifications of what's
to happen.

One thing I always loved about the Open Source world is, if there was a
problem (and no matter what type of it): it didn't exist for long:
people always found a way to make great things happen.

So can we try to get back to the topic? What are we precisely discussing
at the moment?

      * The handling of NEW packages and in which cases to file an ITP.
      * How to retrieve patches in the easiest way.
      * How to start group maintenance.

Maybe there are other issues, I missed in the thread. 

Can you believe it? Just those three bullet points? 

It should be easy to draft specs about exactly these issues. I'm aware
of the fact that it may take longer to implement them and even if we
regard all the corner cases, there will be people arguing, complaining
and bickering, but ... so what?

I was at the Ubuntu Conference in Sydney and one thing I loved
completely, was the way how we discussed specifications and how we
tackled problems.

Shouldn't it be possible to think of solutions in the same way? I can
feel that we all can take incredible benefit out of this, so let's go!
Let's make it happen! :)

Have a nice day,
