As I've just told the DMB, I've been messed around and won't be able to
make the meeting tonight to talk to you in real-time about the
application. So I'm sending my comments to you by email (the DMB need
not consider me for quorum and can proceed regardless).

You've not given any endorsers for your application as you're asked to
do on [0]. If you could arrange for this to happen before the meeting it
would help.

Have you proposed your C rewrite upstream? It seems beneficial to
everyone to drop a TCL dependency. Indeed, it seems as if Didier is
interested in the Ubuntu side as well — are you going to work with him
on the package in Debian?

The packages have outstanding bugs that could do with being prodded

As you may guess, I'm not ready to vote on your application yet. You can
answer my questions either in reply or in the meeting. The most
important oustanding issue IMHO is getting your previous sponsors to
attest that you are ready for unsupervised upload access to these

I'll review the meeting log and vote as soon as possible.
