Re: When acting as a service admin, it's official, no really.

While that may be fine in general, when a team member speaks officially
(and that was explicitly stated by Bastian in this case:

> >     >> > Bastian> For this I need to use my veto as Salsa admin.

) on a public Debian list (or privately), it is up to the team to make
each other aware; it is not up to others to use alternate channels to
say "Hey, one of your team said X on devel.d.o".

If Bastian's veto was not a permanent decision, that was not
communicated at all, and it should have been.  I'm glad it has been
clarified now.
