First, we need to know those blockers. We can figure some of them out on
our own (travel time, work, etc) - but the best way would be to ask, as
I said so in my earlier reply too.

Once we have more input, we can try to find a solution. Most likely you
have way more information about the matter than I do, but right now, I
don't feel we have enough knowledge to start thinking about how to
remove the blockers.

One thing that does come to mind, is that people need to realize that
the DPL is not a one man army. The DPL does not need to do everything
alone, and is not expected to do that, either. (Or if so, we're doing
something terribly wrong)

The DPL must know his or her limits, and - with the help of the project
- find ways to counter them, be that delegations or something else. It
is not, and should not be a one man show.
