Re: Debian Maintainers GR Proposal, alternative update

Hi Steve

Sorry for the delay, I just arrived at College :(

I do not see this as a weakness. My gr proposes the opposite and wants the 
people to at least pass some sort of NM to show that they know about some 
important parts, such as license stuff ...

Atm the FD queue is always empty and processed pretty fast. Of course, this is 
not the same for AMs and I agree with you, that there might be some more AMs 
needed. Although it needs to be considered, that some DMs are just on their 
way to become DDs. Anyway, you might be right that more AMs are needed, but I 
do not see that FD/DAM causes a problem atm (note that FD has access to the 
keyring and does not necessarily need DAM in my proposal).

So far no DD seconded my proposal, therefore I am not quite sure if it is 
worth to continue discussing it. I will try to answer to your arguments, but 
if nobody seconds it, I will keep it quite and not spend heaps of more time 
on the debate.
