I wonder how becoming DM will help you handle your packages better.

You have currently two very old RC bugs (#411070, #400066) and several
packages waiting on new upstream versions (libtrash, #397924 without
answer from you). Quite a few bugs have patches sitting in the BTS for
very long. Several of your packages have not had an update since etch.

In #411070, I haven't seen any contact between you and the other concerned
maintainer. Furthermore you're waiting for a package split from the other
maintainer but you're also claiming that both packages have a different
API/ABI so the proper solution is to get one of the two upstream to rename
their library. And I haven't seen any indication that you are working
towards this...

Instead I read ...

... implying that you're planning to take on more while you're not able to
cope well with the packages that you already have.

This makes me wonder if you're really aware of the level of quality that
we expect from maintainers.
