But licenses are nothing fixed. Upstream can decide to use an other
license. There might be new code included from other authors or projects
under a different license and so on.
To the DM proposers: Does the suggestion in the current form mean that I
will no longer be allowed to sponser anyone out of fear he might become
DM and thus said he is capable enough to maintain this type of package.
Or does the advocate imply that the DM is capable of maintaining all
types of packages.
