I totally agree. If I were forced to reduce my involvement in Debian, I
would probably start by losing interest in "politics", since I could
easily trust other, better-informed DD, to make better choices than I
would do. That wouldn't hurt the Debian project, or at least much less
than poorly maintaining my packages.

Maybe the time before the DPL election could be use to find out how data
from MIA could also be used in this process ?
