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 situation? 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. -Kev -- (__) (oo) /------\/ / | || * /\---/\ ~~ ~~ ...."Have you mooed today?"...
