Well, that is great then. Obviously, I was not aware of this.
My argument still stands though. This has nothing to do with the new copyright
proposal. All this proposal does is cement what is already policy, and what
packagers should already be doing. If the community thinks that policy is at
fault, this should be discussed as a separate matter.
As it stands, I see that people are effectively arguing that the copyright
proposal should be abandoned because it is enforcing an aspect of policy that
people don't wish to follow. All I am doing is suggesting that either we throw
out this argument, or fix the policy.
