No, I would argue that a portion of its membership is trying to rush
and make decisions far too quickly.

I think Joey covered this one.

That is a problem. Perhaps the ctte members are overloaded with other
bdale: cvs_doc, srcdepcvs, wb-hppa, wb-ia64, webwml
aba: cvs_doc, debian-release, mirroradm, qa, volatile, wb-alpha, wb-arm,
wb-hppa, wb-hurd-i386, wb-i386, wb-ia64, wb-m68k, wb-mips, wb-ppc,
wb-s390, wb-sparc, webwml
iwj: dpkgcvs, webwml
vorlon: cvs_doc, debian-release, wb-alpha, wb-arm, wb-hppa, wb-i386,
wb-ia64, wb-m68k, wb-mips, wb-ppc, wb-s390, wb-sparc
srivasta: dbnpolicy, debvote, webwml
ajt: bugscan, cvs_dak, debadmin, debbugs, debian-cd, debian-release,
ftpteam, wb-alpha, wb-arm, wb-hppa, wb-hurd-i386, wb-i386, wb-ia64,
wb-m68k, wb-mips, wb-ppc, wb-s390, wb-sparc
Perhaps committee membership should be limited to those who don't have
other privileged responsibilities.
