So to what extent will such a provisional statement from the chair meet the
needs of someone who would be seeking tech-ctte guidance, then?  It seems to
me that a vote will almost invariably be needed to satisfy the petitioner;
otherwise, why take the issue to the tech-ctte at all instead of just
soliciting opinions on -devel or some other list?

Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
