OK. But then, I'm not sure of the rationale behind this paragraph of

 - need a very good understanding of the archive, how packaging works,
   know qa processes and the general way things are dealt with in
   Debian. This job will throw you right in the middle of all this.
   You just have to know the basics of about every programming language
   you can imagine (and all those you can't but that are still there),
   of all the different packaging systems people use. NEW will present
   all of them and more stuff you never heard about and you need to be
   able to dig through it, searching for possible bad things.

It sounds like advertising FTP assistants positions as something for
legalese geeks, rather than QA geeks, would be a better idea.

Anyway, thank you for the detailed reply.
