Nobody was "tricked".  I believe this claim so laughable, and at the
same time so insulting to Debian Developers ("we forgot to read what
we voted for!  I want a do-over!"), that I don't feel inclined to argue
it further.  Again, the SC is crystal clear; again, only a GR will
change that.

My belief, from experience of many discussions on these topics on these
lists, is that a huge majority of Debian Developers agree that documentation
must follow the DFSG, that a fringe minority who want GNU documentation in
Debian at any and all cost are making ludicrous claims, and that nobody is
falling for them.  I'm willing to continue arguments pertaining to the GFDL,
but these "we didn't *really* want to require documentation to be free"
arguments are going nowhere and are a waste of time, so I'm dropping them.
