BTW, how could I apply for becoming DD with only doing sysadmin tasks?
I'd do it immediately. That's my job, I'm pretty good at it, and I
prefer that to packaging, while I'm able to package too (I already have
a package of mine in Debian).
I've found that in real life, packaging is the only way to *become* DD.
I've already contributed a lot to Debian, for years now (back around
2000), and would like to become a DD, but the work needed just to reach
the Holy Grail is simply too much when you are already working a lot
(especially on Debian bugreporting and patching).
So, how can I apply for DDship while doing the things I'm best at?
