I think this is a poor response. There were several issues that the DPL 
team could have dealt with and didn't - it shouldn't have taken access 
to leader@d.o to realise that, for instance, people had concerns over 
ftp-master communication, consensus within the project, appropriate 
reactions to anti-social behaviour and so on.

Anyone within Debian could have done something about these issues. 
People in the DPL team could probably have done more. Jeroen has claimed 
that he will work to solve them, but (other than initiating a couple of 
polls) has done little to do so so far. So, to rephrase my question more 

Jeroen - you want to push for a code of conduct. You want to write 
"insider reports". You want to act as a mediator. These tasks do not 
require you to be DPL. Why have you not been doing them for the past
