Yeah, well, the natural recurse for such cases it to appeal to the DPL, but
sadly, our current DPL doesn't seem to be very good at mediating, or this
issue would have been solved months ago.
I have some doubts that frans and co will accept any kind of control from
random outsiders though, did you see joeyh's reaction to the support page ?

Yeah, me too, i always believed that if you do good work, your work will be
recognized and accepted. This is how debian should work, but there certainly
is a a subgroup of DDs who do good work and are able to give lot of time to
debian, and this has brought them to a position on proeminence, which i
believe somehow has gotten to their heads.
