I don't think we have the luxury of waiting.  There needs to be a small
amount of corrective action taken now.

As pointed out elsewhere in this thread the TC has the ability to appoint a PTL
should a project end up leaderless should that happen.

However, at the risk of sounding like a humorless automaton, we have a valid
 * Monty Taylor for Packaging-Deb PTL https://review.openstack.org/#/c/292690/

In the interests of transparency I'll say this here.  Monty if you do *NOT*
have a genuine desire to lead the packaging-deb team please abandon that review

Also by the rules I feel like we have no choice but to reject
 * Adding Packaging-Deb/Thomas_Goirand.txt https://review.openstack.org/#/c/292885/

Yours Tony.
