This is not about "disagreements", these are examples of serious mistakes
you've made.  We all make mistakes, what I want to know is whether you've
learned from yours.

A person who introduces a root hole in a package by setting a binary setuid
root without any peer review (including from upstream) should not be allowed
archive upload access.

A person who ignores pointers to failed build logs when they are handed to
him and insists instead that his package has no release-critical bugs should
not be allowed archive upload access.

Are you still that person?
