Indeed, I have to second this, and state that for the next DPL
elections, I will be looking to vote for DPL's that make as part of
their campaign platform that Delegates will be appointed or removed
based on not just how long they have been working on a task, or how
good they are technically, but how well they can communicate with
others, and how well they can send out reports and rationals to
mailing lists (IRC isn't good enough!) **before** people start to
flame and start talking about GR's to replace teams that can't seem to
communicate with anyone else.
(In fact, I'd prefer work getting delayed by 2-3 hours if that meant
getting an adequate report sent out; Lord knows Debian has a whole
lost a heck a lot more time than that due to the controversy caused by
the buildd restrictions.)
So again, I hope we can see a lot more reports like this, and not just
in reaction to massive flame-fests on IRC and mailing lists and key
individuals taking vacations out of sheer frustration.
