Other readers of -project only can look to its archives and
http://lists.debian.org/debian-boot/ for the recent history. AFAICT:
- Sven and some of d-i team seem unable to cooperate;
- Sven has powerpc skills which look vital to d-i and haven't been replaced;
- the mediator appointed by the DPL has quit; and
- both sides seem to be showing unverifiable quotes from the other, such as

Where is the d-i commit access policy stated?  The nearest I found
was http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/svn which isn't
very clear.

Will there be a working d-i on powerpc without Sven Luther's
contributions?  I can't figure out from (the rather slow from
here) http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/d-i/ whether anyone else
works on that.  Using the search on View Log produces many PHP
warnings and time-outs before returning much else.  As far as
I can see from http://bugs.debian.org/debian-installer, Sven
is still the main handler of recent powerpc bug reports.

Will anything other than direct commit access satisfy Sven?
I browsed a lot of emails and didn't find an obvious answer.

Thanks for any answers,
