_when saying that one is a DD_.  This clearly implies that the address
is only given as a contact address for Debian related matters (and
that there's probably another address which can be used to non-Debian

Sure, it would be nice to hear the opinion of more people, but I
personally thought that 100 was a pretty high number.  I thought less
people would participate.

Ah, I'm not sure if this is valid.  Please don't forget that -project
is an optional list, etc.
