The current BTS admins (Adam Heath, Josip Rodin, Colin Watson, and myself) pretty much only involve themselves in technical issues with the BTS; I've done a couple of things that would fit more under the heading of "BTS policy" -- notably the introduction of the "serious" severity, but those have been more as release manager than BTS admin. Which is to say: -A *DRAFT* joint recommendation of the the Technical Committee, the -Project Leader and the Bug Tracking System Administrators. +A *DRAFT* joint recommendation of the the Technical Committee, and the +Project Leader. Anyway, if following the proposed "disputes between developers guidelines" isn't enough to get the disputes about the document itself resolved, it's obviously not good enough as is. > In the instant case, maybe people are fearful of going up against the > legendary Ian Jackson, the Author of Our Package Management System and > Constitution, and Chairman of the Technical Committee. If that's the case, maybe someone who is afraid of disagreeing with Ian -- even though they'd already have the unsubtle precedent of both Branden and Manoj -- could speak up, and we could use that information to write a *better* document about resolving disputes. Personally, I haven't noticed Debian types to be particularly afraid of dissin' authority figures. Given no evidence to assume that it is, though, maybe we shouldn't leap to it as a conclusion just yet?
