(To be honest, I thought you would be against such a change.)
I don't recall having ever threatened you of "enforcement" or with the
"tech-ctte". I recall I did claim people should bring it to the ctte
if they disagree with my decision at the end of the discussion though,
as I did again lately.
I am not very patient in flamewars, and I consider the CTTE could be
used in more decisions to avoid tensions; so when I'm mentionning it,
it's not a weapon, it's a solution for both sids. It's not like a
vote, since it's handled by mandated experts. And I think the CTTE
should be triggerred before it gets too political and we already have a
pile of "I'll leave the project if ...".

I've just filed a bug against tasksel now. Thanks for suggesting that
it's still an option, and that it isn't too late.
