And what do you think of the idea proposed in a reply to steve, namely name a
ftp-assistant solely responsible of handling a given subset of packages, the
kernel and outè-of-tree modules in this case. This would give you the chance
to test the persons competence and stuff like that.
I personally volunteer for this for doing kernel related NEW work, but i guess
someone else can be found if you don't judge me dign of confiance.
I still believe that automation is preferable in this case, and haven't heard
any real argument against it.
