Actually, we really cannot vote on this as such, as the Secretary has
already ruled [1] that the DPL has no power to delegate the
responsibility for the policy manual, as that would contradict the
powers of the Technical Committee. So, AIUI any vote should first be
taken on the ruling on the constitution, as I don't think we can force
the DPL (or the ftpmasters) to take an unconstitutional action.

We can of course force the DPL to allow the TC members to have upload
access to debian-policy.
