To add a bit to Sam's mail and Phil's answer, it was our suggestion to
go for a NU process as Phil struggled to find advocacies for his dd upl

Our reasoning was that either he would get advocacies that included
elements about packaging, and then, depending on how both DAM/FD would
feel, we could still convert the process to a DD, upl process and do
some T&S on the fly, or have Phil become a DD, NU and encourage him to
submit a DD, U application.

Should he get only NU advocacies, then the NU process would still be
good to go and Phil would eventually become a member. The upload pard
would just be a matter of time, as any NU DD can get upload rights on a
package in the meantime.

I hope this makes things clearer. :)

It's far easier to fight for principles than to live up to them.
