This is really nice to hear but makes me wonder why he then really let
then someone like the xgospel maintainer slip through the process with
such a buggy package instead of putting him on hold and make some more
test to see if he will produce better package in the future. (This is
not personally meant.)

I think you are overreacting here. No one said that Martins approch is
generally bad, but for Adrian and myself it looks like he's a bit lazy
in the task&skill test of the NM. We are both doing work for QA and we
see it from the perspective of the QA Team, for which this NMs can
create a lot of work which is not needed. So we propose some stricter
test to make sure that an NM produces quality package for a quality
distrbution. You shouldn't take this to personal, but think a bit more
about the quality of debian.
