Wait a minute.  Since when does Novare dictate Debian policy?  Why are 
you, or they, forcing decisions on Debian solely by virtue of your
status as a donor of equipment to Debian?

Once again, Novare people are invoking their status as Debian donors
as justification for imposing decisions on Debian.  Regardless of
whether the move is justified (I believe it is), you are not the one
to force this decision on Debian, and the fact that your company
donates equipment to Debian gives it no special right to control
Debian.  Where does the Constitution, or the SPI Bylaws, state that
donors have control over Debian affairs?

Novare does not work for Debian or for the developers.  Why should
they make a decision?

I am certainly grateful to Novare for that.  But that doesn't mean
that they can dictate Debian policy.
