What can I say else? You invite me to start a discussion, which I did,
long ago before nm-discuss existed. But a discussion requires more than
an opening.

Neither the remainder of the old new maintainer team (Joey), nor
Wichert seemed to really want a discussion of this. The new maintainer
initiative by Dale existed only to implement the roadmap outlaid
by Wichert (even more "strict" than he outlined it), so what should
I have done there, who I objected against the direction it was going to?

Nobody could really tell me what the problems with the old new 
procedures really were, and I believe the old rules were sufficient.
