That doesn't seem to be what's happened here, though.  Admittedly we've only
seen Manuel's paraphrasing of the conversation he had with FD (Manuel,
please post actual mails, not paraphrasing!), but from there it appears that
this was not being proposed as an example of how Manuel could demonstrate
his involvement and committment to Debian, but rather as an enforced
precondition for the NM process.  I also find that troubling.
