In any case, I hope (haven't read it yet) Marc's platform - But so
far, I think, loser candidates' platforms have not been a waste of
time. DPL platforms serve also as a thermometer of Debian's current
situation - and (of course, adding some bias based on many other
factors) the ranking of each of them says what do the developer body
at large think.
