Re: Shouldn't we have more ftp masters ?

Your mail is not about general development of the Debian distribution
and thus rather on topic on debian-project, please follow-up there.

I don't think NEW is that critical, but it would sure be nice if it gets
processed from time to time.

The FTP-masters are choosing additions to their team themselves and I
think they are the best in place to judge when they need help.

As for the current situation of both ftp-assisstants being on leave,
maybe one of the regular ftp-masters could jump in and process the NEW
queue for the time being?  I have CC'd them on this mail.
