I had suggested	that each mirror make a list of packages to exclude
and that list would be maintainted by each mirror operator. And also make a jigdo
file (which is used to make cd's for installation), so that when people
want to make distributable cd's of debian, that they have a setup file
for each country ( or jurisdiction ??).

if it is excluded on (say) cd#1 but is on all mirrors, is this a better

Either 'software' (new SC) goes into debian, no special fanfaire, or it
is excluded because of current/proposed policy.

If GDFL software is being removed, post-sarge, why not make this situation clear
and do the same for purity,bible-kjv or anything else. We cant exclude
an erotic image in this package and keep other ones that contain worse
just because of historical reasons.
