With that logic: Why does SCO still exist?

No we cant. Just get a CLUE, we are *NOT* debian. We are as similar as
one can get, but the Debian stuff is on .d.o hosts.

No. Because of all the crap that is in there and because WE HAVE MORE
IMPORTANT THINGS TODO - which includes reading crap from someone who
just trolls on lists and not does any work for it.

Hell, please go and read what amd64.d.n is and you would see what a mess
you just wrote. amd64.d.n will exist as long as Sarge is there.
And actually there was one who just went over the non-free crap, looking
at the licenses, giving us something to work with.
If non-free is so important for you - why did you wasted time writing
such mails and havent done that work yourself?
Thats my last mail in this thread, I have more important things todo.

Sigh. One shouldn't AM in the early AM, as it were. <grin>
