And as security team we'ld like to get some better support from DSA
and buildd maintainer so we don't have to wait as long on build
dependencies to be installed and rbuilders to appear (after a few months
of asking around we are still at exactly 1 working rbuilder in
debian.org..). I'm not quite sure how a DPL can help in that though.

Endorsement by Oracle is solely a matter of money: someone will have
to spent a nice amount of cash to get woody certified by Oracle. The
procedure isn't all that difficult.
