Re: package ownership in Debian (was: Why does Ubuntu have all the ideas?)

  Okay here is another honest question:   Do you really honestly think not having co-maintainers for base packages is ever a good idea?  What if someone is busy?  You don't really feel safe noticing your base packages aren't being co-maintained since people are busy.

Also back to the innovation issue:  Don't your think having more comaitainers there would be more innovation merging a package into Debian.  Is your goal just to make a package compile and not have RC bugs, or is it to take a package and innovate in a way to make that package experience must better for a Debian User?  With co-maintainers this would be easier to pull off.

Not to cause a fight, I just wanted to point out some say all Debian is worried about is RC bugs.  "Debian worships RC bugs".  With co-maintainers you could do a better job "worshiping RC Bugs" While doing additional work to innovate how that package will work in Debian.  Plus more QA support when more then one work on the package.
