  And also don't prevent other to help. I won't force him to run 30
useradd, I know which hassle it is, and how time consuming it is. I
resent him for blocking account creations on a regular basis because
he doesn't accept anyone else doing the job. This is just absurd.

  I fully agree that Debian is about what you're interested in. But you
should also do whatever is in your power to be sure everyone _can_ do
what they are interested in. I know at least one of the NM waiting that
is doing massive QA work, proposes NMU patches (that he cannot do
himself 1 week after he sends the patch), just explain to me how DM will
help him.

  Debian is not only about uploading packages. Being a Debian Developer
is far beyond the upload rights.
