Questions for all candidates
since I had no specific questions for Moshe, I thought that I could do a
common questionnaire so that he also has something to answer. :-)
This is a simple questionnaire. You can answer like you want. Cross
as many boxes as needed ... but try to keep the answers logical. Feel
free to justify your choices.
1. master.debian.org is still running potato. What do you think about
[ ] The debian admins should be blamed
[ ] They must have good reasons to not have upgraded
[ ] Nothing, i have to ask some explanations first
[ ] What's the problem exactly ?
2. If you're regularly in contact with debian-admin or ftpmasters or
some other important team, you will have faced rejection of ideas or
requests, and if you criticize them because of that, you may get an

[ ] elmo, a cool guy when you know how to discuss with him
5. The ftpmasters are :
[ ] a good team, other teams should take them as model
[ ] annoying guys who ask you to clarify a license even when it's
quite clear already
[ ] busy guys who take too long to add a package in the archive
[ ] too powerful, refusing to add some packages when

Ok, I'm tired, I'm sure I could have find dozen of other questions like
those five ... but I'll let other people continue with questions like

BTW, nobody should be offended by my questions. They are of course
inspired by my experience within Debian but my questions are not
vindicatory against anyone. I'm already used to how things happen in
