I think this is relevant to debian-vote too, because it affects the
current GR.

Thanks for addressing two of the issues I raised earlier in the week.
Specifically I think it's important to note that you have proposed the
possibility of adding non-free.org maintainers who are not debian.org
maintainers. I suspect some of our users might not want to use packages
from a less trusted source. I would have concerns myself.
