Fwd: Legal advice regarding the NEW queue
I can't really address that, but there are other reasons than legal
risks to follow Debian policy. My impression is that people are
tired of waiting on New, but no one really seems to be interested in
doing any work on any alternative other than more bugs. I'm not sure
how a lawyer can tell you how many bugs are acceptable.
The path forward with this topic is maybe to have a neural network
inference that writes d/copyright with 99.9% accuracy! 😉
