Power, no. Authority? Potentially.
It has to go through the ftp-masters.
Release munging has to go through the ftp-masters too; Joey's stable
changes get made manually, Steve's and Colin's testing changes get made
automatically via britney. Priority/section changes currently require
manual verification and application; having change recommendations that
don't require verification would be the first step, at which point we
could think about scripting it so the "through ftpmaster" step becomes
I'm not sure what "doesn't require verification" would look like for
sections and priorities. For comparison, for "Tasks:" it's "joeyh thinks
they're reasonable", for testing it's "release manager things they're
reasonable, and the changes are from the limited set that britney supports".
Someone (jvw?) has been poking at making the ftp.debian.org REMOVE bugs
move along the scale too, though they're not quite there yet.
