DAM has no competency to make changes to membership structure (was: Call for seconds: Suspension of the changes of the Project's membership procedures.)

also sprach Charles Plessy <plessy@debian.org> [2008.10.25.0310 +0200]:

I do not understand why we need to do this at all. According to [0],
Joerg has been "empowered to create and remove developer accounts
according to the New Maintainer procedure." He has not been
empowered to introduce new membership classes or restructure
membership in any other way.

The proposed changes are outside of the delegate's competencies.
Thus, a GR would need to decide them, but we definitely do not need
a GR to suspend them, because they aren't anything but suggestions
and could not be enacted without the developer collective agreeing.
