Manoj Srivastava has for a number of years been Project Secretary, a very key role in Debian, a role where the incumbent runs project voting. What prompted this post is his recent resignation, which was encouraged by hostility towards the handling of the recent controversial ballot. As evidenced by the various supporters and my own experience, he happens to be among the wisest of all DD's. He is also among the most senior of all, having been involved since 1995.
