The good news is that you'll be having quite a nice time!
I'm sorry I won't see you, though: there's been lots of discussion
recently, hopefully there'll be more at Debconf5 and I wouldn't like to
have you out of the loop.
So, please let me know if I can do anything to keep you in touch: some
sort of report, a phone call or anything.

In case you lost it, here's a point which called for your attention: no
need to hurry, I'm just collecting it here so that it doesn't get lost:
Handling gpg signatures in mails
there's been a discussion on locking some facets or tags to be
changed only by mails signed by a certain group of people (CDD-foo
facets handled by CDD-foo people only; some tags handled only by
whoever adopted them; some 'difficult' tags (such as 'license' if it
existed) handled only by a specialised team.
I've been looking at the code and it seems doable but not trivial
(it's easy to hook gpg key verification into decoding, while the
ACL-like system for restricted tags would need to be implemented from
scratch. I thought of making a patch, but then I have a hard time
trying it out.
Also, there is something I thought I wrote but I can't find it, I
probably wanted to write it but I haven't done it yet:
would it be possible to remove the "(attach)" link for bare facets
(such as 'devel') in the packagebrowser? It should be a quick and
small change to the interface, but it'd mean that people would use the
real specific tag instead of a facet which usually doesn't mean much.
Enjoy your trip in the parks, and see you when you come back!

 The packagebrowser script is not in 'central-database' and there's
no installation instructions such as SQL CREATE TABLE statements.
