I had no problems interacting with the front desk members. AFAIK they're
always open to suggestions and will happily give you their point of view.

Don't expect to make the NM system evolve if you can't be bothered to

We had some AM replacements recently. We're improving on that front. Myon
just need to get some more confidence in doing that and saying to some AM
that they have not been very good, that they should concentrate on
something else in Debian.
