delegation for the Policy Editors

Dear project members, Great news: after doing great work during the last year, Jonathan Nieder has agreed to officially join the Debian Policy team. I am therefore updating this delegation.

The task description is unchanged from the previous Policy Editors
delegation (http://lists.debian.org/20121017195148.GA26024@upsilon.cc).

For more information about the Debian Policy team, have a look at the
team page: http://wiki.debian.org/Teams/Policy

Policy Editors delegation
=========================

I hereby appoint the following developers as Policy Editors:

– Andreas Barth (aba)
– Bill Allombert (ballombe)
– Charles Plessy (plessy)
– Jonathan Nieder (jrnieder)
– Russ Allbery (rra)

Any previous Debian Policy delegation, not explicitly listed above, is
revoked. The delegation is not time-limited. It will be effective until
further changes by present or future DPLs.

Task Description
—————-

The Debian Policy team is responsible for maintaining and coordinating
updates to the Debian Policy Manual and all the other policy documents
released as part of the “debian-policy” package.

The Debian Policy Editors:

– Guide the work on the Debian Policy Manual and related documents as a
collaborative process where developers review and second or object to
proposals, usually on the debian-policy mailing list [1].

[1]: https://lists.debian.org/debian-policy/

– Count seconds and weight objections to proposals, to determine whether
they have reached sufficient consensus to be included, and accept
consensual proposals.

– Reject or refer to the Technical Committee proposals that fail to
reach consensus.

– Commit changes to the version control system repository used to
maintain the Debian Policy Manual and related documents.

– Maintain the “debian-policy” package. As package maintainers, they
have the last word on package content, releases, bug reports, etc.
