what are meant to be put on the wiki page are not personnal 
informations, but what is already findable with google and a couple 
hours of free time:
 * packaging teams you are member of ;
 * your PTS/DDPO page ;
 * BTS activity ;
 * posts relating things you've done helped for (on the mail list
   archives) ;
 * other free projects your are a member of ;
 * etc ...

Please tell me what isn't *already* public in that ?
It's only a way to sort NM to give them an AM iff they are 
commited "enough" to debian. If the wiki page is empty, the Front Desk 
see his work made easier for those.

I've never suggested that answer to the templates had to be prepared on 
a wiki, and I've never wanted it either.

I see the "wiki page" thing, like a place where an AM gather 
informations about what he does in/for debian. Nothing else, nothing 
more. And like other have said, that can (should ?) be a living page, 
growing with you widening interest for every debian related tasks. But 
again, it's only supposed to list things that a tedious google search 
can *already* reveal.


And as of the templates, an applicant just can't say that all the 
information is private, because that wouldn't let anything left for the 
*public* AM report. technically he *can* ask for full secrecy, but he 
won't become a DD.

Other point, I'm really in favour that applications of NM that actually 
become DDs is made *fully* public (and not restricted to DD only).
