You are changing the subject.

Marco's claim is that "people was not aware" that the changes was
intended to put an end to the ALREADY EXISTING recurring discussions
about what we mean by "100% free software"

The only one who was aware that the outcome would change the release
manager's position wrt. freedom bugs in sarge seems to have been the
release manager himself. But that does not change the fact that it was
common knowledge that the amendment was intended to end the
uncertainty about the meaning of "100% free software".
