Given that both candidates, plus the previous DPL, already answered,
and I feel they all felt the same I did when reading your
question... Could you give examples of prior DPLs leading "concrete
changes that we want in Debian"? Do you mean in a technical sphere?
(i.e. like when Sam pushed for standarization in our Git workflows) Or
do you mean on a social, organizational sphere (such as the Debian
Diversity Statement, during Stefano's period, and the adoption of the
CoC, during Lucas')? Or do you mean specific reform goals stated as
DPL platforms (as Brian's campaign last year)?

I am not asking "just because", but rather, maybe we all misunderstood
your point. Does ellaborating in this way help it reach its point?
