Re: Alternate proposal for Declassification of debian-private archives

Quoting Manoj Srivastava <srivasta@debian.org>:

What is this supposed to mean? If no comments have been made by the
author for eight weeks, messages will be automatically declassified?
It looks like a kind of opt out to me.

Why is this necessary in addition to the following paragraph? Maybe I
did not understand correctly.

Two weeks is too short to review, IMO.
