Can you explain why you think that mere length of time with
Debian is a good metric for the ability to judge who should be a part
of Debian? Does the duration of stay also lend credence to the DD's

leverage this avility, gained by tenure, in other ways?
not sure mere tenure lends itself to great judgement
