Are anyone else not admins? If so, I suggest either we decide on a public policy on our reasoning for differentiating, or (preferrably) have everyone be admins at Alioth: We do use distributed VCS for all our work, so noone really can do much harm, I believe.

I'd prefer to go with the principle of least priviledge, which means that admin status is only granted if someone requires or asks for it. I've noticed that you repond rather quickly to new introductions for prospective members, so having you as admin just makes sense to me.

OTOH, I'd encourage everyone that currently has admin status to consider dropping it in case he doesn't require it.

Then let me put it upside down: What extra responsibilities am I now burdenend with, compared to those not admins in this team?

Currently, I see (anyone feel free to correct me)

- approving new applications after making sure that they are fit
- editing the meta data of the alioth project

 - grant others membership of the admin club

I would like us to be as equal as possible in this team. We are not equal outside of the team (some of us have access to upload to Debian, Ubuntu, Skolelinux or other places, some are rich, some get laid etc.) but I fail to see the need for multiple access levels here in this team.

Everyone in the team is allowed to welcome prospective members. Those that actively do so (properly) are granted admin priviledges. To my book, this makes all team members practically "equal".

In my vocabulary that might be _principally_ equal, but practically not: It's like saying we all are practically conomically equal when we can all buy lottery tickets.

What do others think?
