As a student, I'm reasonable flexible in hours to spend on whatever I
like. But well, if elected, I feel obligied to spend a certain amount of
time on DPL-related issues, and this will mean less time for other

I've got hardly any position/task/whatever that I hold alone, I'm always
working together with others. So I don't forsee real problems. There are
only two packages of mine that have no co-maintainers, and they are
really minor.

I hardly watch TV, have no girlfriend, nor a garden, so nothing to win
here :).

Enable others to help/take over. If that doesn't work, and nobody is
apparantly interested in a certain task, well, then it won't get done.
So is open source life, though, and this is something unavoidable in
volunteer projects like Debian. People scratch their itches, and if some
itch isn't bothering anyone enough to be scratched, it'll remain.
