Uh, for one thing, "leader@debian.org" != "DPL Team".  It was Branden's

anyone could feel comfortable contacting leader@ about confidential matters;
the flipside is that responsiveness to that address was definitely
contingent on Branden's personal availability.

Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
