  Well, I'm still not sure wether DM is a good thing or not in fact. But
I'd say it has te be experimented yes. If we are going that road, Then
I've two people to recommend for this: Fathi and Yves-Alexis Perez that
is our one-man xfce-team (at least judging the XFCE Team recent activity
I think he is doing 99% of the job), and that is truck in NM because is
AM has still not sent his AM report (for almost 4 monthes).

  For Corsac (Yves-Alexis) it's not the best solution, but at least he
would not depend upon a sponsor anymore for the XFCE uploads, and I'm
sure it will be a spine out of his foot.

  In fact I think that at some point of the NM process, if the AM is
sure that his NM is doing a good job with his package, inclusion in the
DM should be very easy. I believe that allow a quite smoother
integration of the NMs in Debian, and goes in the right direction.

  Let me know what I have to do for this to happen.
