Only the ftp-assistants were on vacation, the ftp-masters were still
around.  I assume they evaluated the situation and decided it was not
critical enough to warrant further steps.

Well, it seems their vacations are over now or very soon, so this point
is moot.

Personally, I don't think this issue is enough to revoke ftp-master's
right to choose their staff among themselves, but rather push more
people onto their team without their consent.

Please follow-up on -project.
