The old opt-out was broken and I don't see this fact first. The problems with the qa group and the maintainers with 'daily new packages' (like kernel-*) are the reason for the stopping. No consence or insights was the reason for this stop or the opt-in. I don't think this is - no spam - no violating the DMUP - don't break some laws in some countries (maybe I can't drive to the USA in future?) I start only the opt-in now, because of - the respect of your 'opt-in' boys - the promise on #debian-devel and I love consence and rules. I like the opt-out system. Maybe we need a GR, maybe we can opt-out the few 'opt-in' boys and change the default.
