Bruce is on record as saying that he meant it to refer to all data in
Debian. On the other hand, this is never explicitly stated in the thread
that preceeded the vote. It's possible that the majority of people who
voted for it disagreed, but there's no way to ever know that.

On the other hand, it is possible to say with a decent amount of
conviction that the people who voted in the most recent GR were aware of
what the consequences would be. You may not agree.
