How do you expect to push your agenda for the project?
I do wonder why your question is for lucas specifically? It would be
to hear other candidates on this too.
I have tried to avoid basing my platform directly on anything that
would require existing delegates to make specific actions with respect
to delegated areas (or, equivalently, that would imply the replacement
of delegates if they don't agree).
I do make statements about general ways that I would like delegates,
and other members of Debian teams, to behave, as well as mentioning some
areas for possible new delegations, or expansions of existing ones. I
give a few examples of things I'd like to see happen, as views rather
than promises, in the "Specific ideas" subsection.
I have similarly tried to avoid including too much that would be nice
but that isn't related to the DPL position or more generally to
coordination of Debian. For example, I think it would be nice to have a
DVCS containing up-to-date source for all Debian packages, but I can't
really state that me becoming DPL would make it happen more quickly.
Looking through my platform:
"Delegation and teams": in part constitutional powers, in part
influence/persuasion, in part aspiration.
"External communications": delegation/recruitment.
"Coordination/mediation", "Internal communication", "Local
communications", "Fundraising and spending", "Merging from the DebConf
branch": in part directly related to DPL powers about delegations and
money-handling; for other parts no special powers are required in
principle, but these are much more likely to be successful with the
DPL's voice behind them and backed up by delegations.
