Does this mean that this message is not meant to create any new
delegations?  Below you say otherwise, so I'm confused.

Hasn't debian.net DNS management delegated to others?

Among other things, ftp-master decides what's acceptable for the
archive (see the Java 5 addition if this is not clear), and IMHO, this
activity needs delegation, too.  But according to my reading of the
Constitution (Article 2.1(2)), you cannot delegate to a team you are a
member of, anyway.

I'm positively surprised that DSA and keyring-maint themselves want to
use RT to improve their communication.
