Re: I want to become a Debian maintainer!

Can you please calm down?

It's becoming more and more a pain to try to keep you cool.

Being a DM won't help much, you'll only be able to upload some specific
packages.  Patches is what we need anyway, DM won't make things faster,
code does.  The upload part is not the main part, cf the ada fixes, once
you had a patch, it didn't take me much time to check & commit them.

You are dreaming.  I doubt it'll be a first class citizen yet in only a
few years.

History can happen later too.  It'd be really good to make it for
Squeeze.  If we don't, then that's still not mayhem.

Really. Please. Calm. Down.
