I'm not sure. I think Erinn is probably right. While the goal of DW
might be different for different people, I think Erinn made a valid
point that its primary goal is to involve women, not to technically
improve Debian; that should only be a secondary goal. The rest of
Debian is already busy with that, and doesn't need specialised help
for it. A guy then doing that sort of work could be counterproductive
to that goal. Anyways, looks like Lesley has already stepped up to
that task.

And I obviously like the sound of my own typing too much and will STFU
now like Erinn suggested. :-)
