Why are you arguing with one of your release deputies[1] on a public
mailing list, instead of working out procedures as a group, and present
coherent and consistent recommendations to the rest of the Project?

It's been almost four months since Joey H., Colin W., and Steve L. were
officially deputized; I would have thought this sort of thing would have
been hashed out by now.

Also, why aren't the assistant release managers mentioned on Debian's
organization page?
