s/lot/small amount/;s/those DD's/at least 2 DDs/

The crucial point of the Dunc-Tank experiment was that it was not "an
entity A", but an effort led by the current DPL. If the DPL was
employed by a company that also want to pay other developers, they might

After all, it has been done for long, with nobody speaking up, not even
Joey and Thibaut.
I can only emphasize that I, too, do not like the implications of
