Not so bad…

It’s not unknown for people maintaining Debian packages via sponsorship to become frustrated with the process sometimes – a feeling sometimes shared by sponsors who find that the person they’re just nodding through packages. This sort of frustration with process gets pretty depressing at times so it’s a bit of a shock to see us being held up as an example a better way. Of course, the two cases covered here not the same at all but it is still good to see things like that.

It looks like we may well continue to make progress with this thanks to proposals like having Debian Maintainers as well as developers – another iteration of ideas like sponsorship which was originally developed to work around a process problem that people were seeing at the time with NM.
