I've had everything from refusals to sign my gpg key (3 or 4)
to being misnamed in documents (twice) because of that error,
all of which take time I could spend on Debian and the silence
of admin@db makes me dislike the project a bit more.  It's not
direct, but a happy project is a more productive project, yes?

If a task isn't going to be done by a delegate, let it be done
by anyone or explain the barrier on the help pages (like enable
chfn on gluck). In general, even a "we'll deal with this last"
from people would avoid DDs feeling in limbo. admin@db could
be hit by a truck, and it would make no difference to some:
but how many?

OK, and what about the tasks not in the BTS? Should they be added?
