You wouldn't have been assuming leadership of the project in any formal 
manner. However, you've made it clear that you think that the DPL team 
needs leadership - you had the opportunity to provide coordination and 
make sure that things got done, but chose not to.

But surely the point of a team is for people to be able to pick up the 
slack if someone can't cope? If you believe that the DPL should still be 
a single point of failure, what's the point in electing you?
