Could you give some examples of DPL tasks of the last 24 months that you
could have transferred to someone else?
Looking through your log, I have the impression that most of the tasks
are either very short tasks, or tasks that would require the DPL's own
attention very frequently (unless you will authorize people to talk as
if they were the DPL).
What are the main skills required for a DPL? How will your practicing
Why do you think that previous attempts of DPL practicing failed?
