i guess debian-developers are not ``protecting'' you but, as the
resolution suggest, ``not doing''...
and if you need netscape, go to www.netscape.com to download a tar
ball, if you need jdk, go to java.sun.com for a tar ball, and if
you're luck there could be someone build a deb ``protecting'' you
on their own site somewhere... your box is yours, the resolution
as i understand, didn't force anything on YOUR BOX, but wanna
to enforce DEBIAN the distribution, and as you're using non-free,
there are alreay software (non-free) outside DEBIAN the distro on
your box, right?
so if the resolution succeed, they rm non-free, but what on earth
have changed to you???? your box is yours, anyways, DEBIAN is
the FREE SOFTWARE COMMUNITY'S.
