  I think you're diverting the original question Aurélien asked. There
is also many discussions around spam on private@ that show that DSA are
not enough to deal with all the work they have to achieve, whereas their
work is needed for debian to work properly.

  On the organization page, there is 5 names listed as DSA, I've never
heard about 2 of them lately, so I wonder if you will appoint new DSA or

  as a matter of a fact, like I already said in private to you, I do
volunteer, especially wrt the spam issues we meet atm, for whose I do
have quite an experience with.
