Seriously, Richard. You became a DD in 2001, and since then, you have
only done 17 uploads on 3 different packages (last one in 2007, on the
only package you maintain: set6x86).
Emilio isn't a DD yet, and has already been in the Changed-By: field of
80 uploads. And given that for most of them it was work done inside the
GNOME team, he probably touched a lot more packages.
Don't you think that there's some sense in listening to what Emilio
says, whithout immediately minimizing his arguments, since he has
already been at least 4 times more useful to Debian than you were during
the last 8 years?
