Hi Andrew:

Well you pretty much answered the "how so" below. :)

Interesting, and thanks for the URL. My position FWIW is that the
delegate idea merits consideration, for such an individual(s) in charge
of the Debian Project Web site, FTP, OR the e-mail lists. I don't think
accountability hinders, it helps with transparency.

I used "FWIW" as I'm not a Debian developer, merely a satisfied user.
That shouldn't matter though eh ? ;)

P.S. The delayed response is due to the org e-mail being stuck in my mailq
since the 27th. :(
