Every additional member with write access to the archive is an additional threat to the integrity of the archive in case of a developer gone bad or a compromised key; also, every additional member is another to keep track of to make sure they don't go MIA. Just my two cents. I think we should introduce a new state of contributor: the person gets an @debian.org email address and voting rights and even -private for all I care, but write access to the archive should be restricted to developers. We should push that people can contribute without being "second class" or otherwise inferior. We should make sure that people want to help but don't want to get flamed in the daily developer debates. -- Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list! .''`. martin f. krafft <email@example.com> : :' : proud Debian developer, admin, user, and author `. `'` `- Debian - when you have better things to do than fixing a system Invalid/expired PGP subkeys?
