6 A few things are a bit unclear to me. Rewording would be enough, it
7 doesn't touch the meaning of the GLEP.
9 What's the definition of a "non-arch dev"? Is it a dev not in an arch
10 team?
12 And the final paragraph:
13 "Ciaranm and weeve have noted that it is occasionally necessary for arch
14 teams to override a package maintainer when it comes to stabling a
15 package. Stuart has asserted that in those cases the arch team should be
16 willing to take on the support burden for that package."
18 Overriding here means stabling before the maintainer does it, not
19 keeping it in unstable while the maintainer wants to mark it stable,
20 right?
22 Regards,
23 Maurice.
