Erm, announcements != communication.  I think the dunc-tank was quite
an example of the difference between the two, with various inputs
seemingly ignored.

Now, I'm hardly the most involved with the DPL, but I've had
substantive replies from Sam the two or three times I've contacted
him, compared with responses (seldom replies) followed by non-response
from previous DPLs.  (It wasn't a language thing AFAICT, as lazily I
used English with all three.)  So my limited experience of Sam has
been that he's improved communications.

I'd be interested to know if other DDs felt the same, as well as any
comments from those who've interacted with these candidates.

Are any of the DDs planning to automate announcements at all, similar
to Aigars Mahinov's idea on lines 428/429 of last year's debate?

Oh and is Marc Haber wanting to cash in this pledge:-
#  <SamHocevar>  If I fail to properly report, I shall offer full
reimbursement for your annual Debian subscription and a right to spank
me at the next DebConf. [22:48]
