With the automation, I don't see why it'd be a large problem. Debian has
functioned pretty well with it's new maintainer team... SPI, if it has
that big if a membership work load, should also have a larger pool of
volunteers that can be tapped for projects such as this.

Please cc all mailing list replies to me, also.
