I think that's a common feeling about delegates.  I think it's
linked to 26 developers holding two or more organisational roles
(and two have 7 each).

Then I don't understand Jörg Jaspert's role at all. He is listed
on http://www.uk.debian.org/intro/organization as handling NEW.
Matthew Garrett's description of ftpmastering doesn't seem to 
describe these FTP assistants.

You're preaching to the converted here, but I believe I'm mostly
ignored by the three ftpmasters on that list with higher status
than Jörg Jaspert. That is partly why I usually work on ITPs,
bug reports and external questions. Their email address is
ftpmaster@debian.org if you want to see whether you can find
out what they'd like you to provide.
