I don't understand that. Hector has been doing a good amount of work as
part of the DSA team. After he has been a trainee for half a year, I
spoke with the other members (yes, that was done privatly, i need to
admit) if they also think that he should become a full member. I waited
until I heared back from all other members.

My intent was to be as open as possible in the decission we have taken. 
As Joerg wrote, I think uncontroversial changes to functional teams have
never been a problem for an update of a DPL delegation.

Is the DSA team a non-functional team?
