For tasks not currently under anyone's specific responsibility, I'd
describe the task, and announce the delegation on an appropriate
mailinglist. The appropriate place is depending on the importance of a
task, delegating someone to deal with a specific negotiation is
something else than a delegation of an ongoing infrastructural task. For
selection of who to delegate, I'd inquire with related delegates,
related teams, and any other stakeholders, and of course with my DPL
team -- but make the decision myself.

For tasks currently delegated, or at least, currently performed by
someone or some team, I'd leave that to the current responsibles, and
merely rubber-stamp. Where task descriptions are unclear[1], or even
disputed, I'll work on documenting that. Only when there's a very strong
reason to do otherwise, I'd do so, but that's a sort of last-resort
action, only to be done when there couldn't be an agreement any other

    maintainer, buildd maintainers, port maintainers and ftp-masters
    respectively, for example
