I think Guillem's suggestion is not respecting the great work several
DPLs have done and I remember DPLs who saved Debian from beeing trapped
in a blind alley.

I admit I have ideas how we could move Debian a bit but to do so I
expect so many time draining jobs that it would become incompatible with
my day job.  Beeing in a sitiation where my employer would not support
pure Debian dedicated work I feel not able to do a responsible job as

However, I would like to encourage new DDs to apply for the job.  There
is no need to be a long standing DD to run for the position.  It is your
chance to implement your ideas and fix issues long standing DDs might
have became blind about.

Kind regards
