Re: shortening release cycles

Be careful of problems created by "hard, fast rules"!
I believe that there have been people in the past that became
developers after first packaging and maintaining a new package
outside of the formal debian organization.

You don't want to create a rule that precludes allowing people with
a good performance record from becoming a "new" package developer
just because they have not been a member of debian's developer team.
