Nobody likes a perky goth

Debian project leader elections are coming up soon. My vote will go to the candidate that:

  • Makes no promises for significant projectwide change.
  • Provides at least one mail every 8 weeks to summerise "stuff".

Thats all.

I guess most people don't really care about being a DPL per-se, instead they stand for election to accomplish a pet project, or two. (Not that there is anything wrong with that. If your platform says "Elect me and I'll do $foo" then you've got implicit support.)

A recurring theme in platforms has been communication, and I think that over time it has got a lot better. Regardless, if theres one thing I want to see from the DPL in 2009 it is even more communication.

In other news, depending on your timezone, todays date is 3/3/9 - enjoy it while it lasts. The next similar date is 4/4/16 - which is seven years in the future.

If I had a vote, it would be for whoever promised to facilitate multi-arch dpkg support.
