For those still playing, Olaf also isn't a Debian developer, doesn't
maintain any packages, and isn't a new-maintainer applicant. He's made
something like 5 posts to debian-legal, though, which I guess given Andrew
Donnellan's assertion that someone with one post ever on -legal is a
"regular participant", means Olaf is a senior analyst or something.
I guess the conclusion is that being a Debian developer means you're
right and not being one means you're wrong?
