+# DPL elections strike back
+
+So ... here we go, it's
+[**DPL election time** again](http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2010/03/msg00000.html),
+and
+[**I'm a candidate**](http://lists.debian.org/debian-vote/2010/03/msg00001.html).
+
+After a few long days of suspense with me as the only candidate,
+[we are now 4 candidates](http://news.debian.net/2010/03/12/debian-project-leader-elections-2010-2/). I
+was not particularly happy of the scenario of being the only candidate: it
+would have given (both to the world and to DDs) an unjustified impression of
+disinterest towards the position, and would have also made quite pointless to
+discuss topics of Debian "politics" (*« so, <acronym title="None Of The
+Above">NOTA</acronym>, what do you think of time-based freezes? »*).  With 4
+candidates, campaigning is now much more useful, interesting, and
+*challenging*, as the archives of `-vote` already show.
+
+As last year, I've setup
+[[hacking/debian/dpl-2010|a page documenting my attempt]], which includes an
+**index of questions posed to the candidates** on `-vote`.  <small>(To maintain
+the index, it helps quite a lot to maintain one-subject-per-question. Hint,
+hint.)</small>
+
+Good luck to all candidates! <br /> ... and don't forget the
+[**DPL campaigning law**](http://identi.ca/notice/24858005)! <small>(with
+credits to Rhonda)</small>
