Well, I'm afraid that I'm not a responsible maintainer, then....:-)
So is the d-i team, the testing security team and so on.
Maybe alioth maintenance does not fit your own admin quality reference
Then, I see a few solutions to this:
-contribute to alioth system administration
-make constructive suggestions (constructive suggestions are
argumented suggestions and sometimes accept that people do not agree
with what you suggest)
-do not use it
-build a concurrent collaborative development environment and convince
people that it's better than alioth
As far as I know, Alioth maintenance is handled by the relevant people
on their free time, as a volunteer work (just like all work we do in
this project). Thus they deserve some respect for the time they invest
in it. *Even* if you do not agree with their technical choices or
method of work.
