I think we'll try to spread the workload depending on the circumstances
of the moment.

We will both receive leader@debian.org and will divide the tasks between
us. Of course we will discuss with each other for important decisions
and about who does what including feedback about what has been done.

Steve will of course have the last word as he is the official DPL. So he
certainly will correct anything I misrepresented above :-)

I think I'll be less active on most of them, though that does not mean
the members of the mentioned teams have to lose me :-) I certainly will
have to delegate more and find more people willing to do the 'ground
work', though I think that's a good thing. Currently the RMs are doing a
lot of day to day tasks, having more delegation would mean they could
focus more on the communication and management both in the Release Team
(and for me also elsewhere which is in line with the role of DPL
assistant AFAICS).

Btw, I'm certainly interested to know who is interested in day-to-day QA
& release tasks, in one of my packages, in buildd maintenance or in
taking over other things I do, to relieve my workload. Please contact me
in private and we'll try to work something out.
