Thanks for pointing out the mudslinging part. I've always thought it's a
completely unnecessary waste of energy that we could really do without.

I don't think the DPL election needs more than people presenting their
intended agenda and chances to commit to it, and questions asked to
clarify details.

The rebuttal part I find particularly funny, as it tends to be either "I
mostly agree with what you say, although I see priorities differently"
or "You're a nutter candidating as a joke but I have to waste half an
hour in a strange ritual in which I find some formal diplomatic way to
say it".

The role of DPL has probably become more clearly defined over time: give
talks and interviews, ping people, put people in touch with people.

Because of that, I think the process of picking what active member of
the project we will particularly listen to for the next year, could do
with a lot less drama than we're used to.
