questions for all candidates

The campaign period is open according to
<http://www.debian.org/vote/2006/vote_002>, so here are two questions for all
of the candidates.

1. The past two years have seen higher numbers of candidates standing for DPL
   than in the past.  While our voting system has no problem scaling to seven
   candidates, comments I've heard from a number of developers suggest that
   a high number of candidates makes it more difficult for voters to
   navigate the ballot and cast informed votes.  I'm sure when platforms are
   posted you'll tell us why each of you believes that you personally should
   run, but what do you think about having seven candidates in this
   election?  Is it a healthy thing that we have so many developers willing
   to sit in the hot seat, or is it a sign of fragmentation in the project
   and a lack of strong leadership?

2. If you are elected, do you currently think you would be interested in
   running for re-election next year?  Why or why not?
