I'm clearly not particularly good at posing trick question to the
candidates; aj was much better than me at that! ;-) That said, given you
already unraveled part of the arguments I was interested in seen
discussed (and still am!, especially by the candidates), let me try to
enlarge the scope.

Due to time and travel demands, there are blockers in being DPLs. Most
of them are work related. Within that category of blockers, some could
be solved by a salary but many (according to your judgement) could not.
If we agree on this, it means that we are losing many potential good DPL
candidates due to those blockers.

The broader question is than: what can we do to loose those blockers and
profit more from the abilities that we do have in our community?

Maybe the answer is "nothing"; it's just the way it is, and we should
accept a "deficit" on that front wrt other communities. But maybe there
is something else we could do... what?
