Delegates may make decisions as they see fit,. They should
attempt to implement good technical decisions. Use the or
alternative. The follow consensus opinion is an or.

Urm, what word do you want from secretary? I have already stated
that as secretary I thought that this did not violate the constitution,
and that DAM can decide who is or is not a DD, and that there already
are mapping from the set of developers to capabilities which are
non-uniform, and this added nothing but a semi formal mapping of
subsets of developers to capabilities which is definitely a power that
can be delegated.
So, no constitutional violation here.
