Seconded, although I doubt that the current DPL will in fact do anything
DSA has apparently been unable to consistently accept gifts of hardware or
offers of volunteer work for as long as I can remember. It is mostly
non-responsive. It is broken and everyone routes around it to the maximum
extent possible. :-( Luckily it can usually be routed around, unlike some
of the other broken parts of Debian.
