I think I'm speaking on behalf on all the Alioth admins that we'd like
to avoid being in such a position and role.  I'd rather it went to the
tech-ctte and we'd just do the technical implementation (mark whoever as
a project admin).  I certainly don't want to get dragged into what'll
easily become personal and political conflicts which do not intersect
with me personally or my areas of interest.
