Let me expand on my original message. Sean has been an integral part of the Python community for many years, keeping much of our hardware and software humming and providing critical network expertise at PyCon. I don't think we have to be such slaves to a set of rules that we can't use an implicit trust network to make decisions in certain cases. I trust Sean's judgement.
