Is Joey Hess not a Technical comittee member ? I don't think Frans Pop is
though, nor someone else of the d-i team. Ah, i must be wrong, it seems that
Joey Hess is not listed as tech ctte member.
Of the other members, believe both Steve Langasek, and Anthony Towns have
showed clear uncomprehension and one-sidedness about this issue, and i am not
sure they will be able to pass an objective judgement over this. Manoj
Srivastava also has been strongly aggressive against me about the non-free
firmware vote, which he manipulated in favour of his own position, maybe
If these three can take an objective view of these issues, fine, but i would
be strongly suspicious of their own emotival satbility on this issue, and thus
their ability to come to the fair judgement that is needed in this case.
