You can also decide to take them out of the group, if you
desire. Especially if we don't have a replacement "main responsible
person" for them.

Well, if the team has more to win (you two) from switching to
Subversion than it has to loose (me), then we should definitely do
that. Given that I'm in a state of "not enough time" at the moment,
and to be fair not opposed to reducing my Debian commitments it is
very well possible (or even probable) that the two of you (or only
one) would more than offset my departure.

The only package that is "mine" is sork-passwd; fairly simple, small
and minor. I can abandon it to the new team or maintain it on my own.

The third path, the one of compromise, would be another distributed
system with a better / more intuitive / ... user interface.

Opinions of the others?
