We should ensure that the document describing the organisational layout
of the project[1] is accurate. I can come into Ian Jackson's reply[2],
and I don't feel it is really needed to tackle this issue, as long as
the differences either way are mostly academic. I intend to focus on
real issues instead. When the difference is relevant, I will focus on
achieving what I want to achieve. As I wrote in my platform:

| [Debian] excels where people work together directly on technical
| problems they like to contribute to. It is the nature of the Debian

| all.

What remains on the plate from the current term, is working with some of
those teams to get some bottlenecks and other issues resolved, but I do
not expect to need to (or that it would be effective to) resort to
powers only available for dealing with delegated teams, nor do I
currently consider any of the issues pressing enough to promise
working on them in my platform -- I will work on some of them, and
direct more attention when needed, but there are only so many hours in a
year, and I want to focus my DPL-ship.
