Hi Brian,

I created this page last month and asked for comments on this list.


I think that Richard has a point when recommending to avoid potentially
confusing analogies and being clear on what we mean by "cloud".  If that draft
is not satisfying it will not go further, and if it is harmful as it is, let's
delete it.

One point that I think that is important to make, is that points of view
diverge on the question of "software as a service", and that the answer is
external to the foundation principles of Debian.

If the discussions on this list are enough, that would be the best, but I
am worried that we need more...
