I do not trust a majority of people – regardless of the people – to make
an appropriate managerial decision. We have people in charge, who take a
lot of time to remain informed of the status of various subsystems in
Debian so that they can make informed decisions. If we replace them by a
majority’s vote, you can expect the decisions to be wrong.
