	I can't act against the GR, no. I won't break the rules (as
 required by the constitution that I have agreed to follow).

	As a team member, I don't have to do anything.  I am not
 preventing the action being taken -- other members of the team can do
 it.  I just refuse to act against my best judgement.

	If you want to force me to work in a fashion I do not agree
 with, you have to pay my going rates -- and _maybe_ I'll do it.

	Wrong. The "law" defends precisely my position. It says
 explicitly that y'all can't make me do anything, GR or no GR.  This
 is an essential element of Debian, a volunteer organization.

Why do so many foods come packaged in plastic?  It's quite uncanny.
