I have a creepy feeling that you are not wearing a user hat
but rather a hat of an organisation with a specific agenda.

The current compromise of splitting gimp/gimp-nonfree is
not ideal, but it's temporary measure anyway..

Nobody but a religous nut would claim that providing a
Suggests: link to software that is free (except for some
parts of world) is evil.

Sure, keep lowering the quality of debian-devel mailing list
in matter or signal/noise ratio, If everyone of the 1784 list
members used 1 minute reading your rants, we've just lost
4 workdays of creating a better debian.

Please provide patches, not flames.

Some contructive suggestions:

1) Eat some icecream and cool down.
2) Just wait until dust settles around lzw.
3) Add non-lzw gif saving support to gimp.
4) Patch apt-listchanges so that id doesn't mail about suggestions
   on packages that are not available.
