I fear it wouldn't work in practise.  I have no idea whether the people
I value, and would like to see in the position of DPL, have any
inclination and, in particular, the needed free time to do so.  It
doesn't make much sense that everybody starts sending e-mails around "Hi
$foo, I think you are $bar, would you mind me nominating you for DPL?".

There are two approaches to solve this practical problem.  One is that
effectively we continue with self-nomination, just that the candidate
needs to collect seconds before he goes public.  The other would be that
we would form "policital" parties who decide internally whom they

I do not want political parties in Debian.
