	And I may not. Any reports against cvs-buildpackage shall be
 rejected, as they have before. Bash is still an essential package,
 and is still referred to in the policy manual. If this has to be
 changed, we need to ratify the constitution, so that I and the tech
 committee (along with others who have shown signs of volunteering)
 can do something about the policy manual. 

	Dictating policy via the BTS is not something I espouse.
