I think that Debian would very much benefit if there was a place (call
it debian-legal@l.d.o or whatever) where our policy with regard to
individual software's licenes could be discussed with the input of those
who actually set this policy: the ftpmasters.

If debian-legal isn't the place for you (and AFAIK none of the other
ftpmasters is a regular), maybe we need a new start and a different
format.  But it's a pity that there's no way to get the ftpmasters'
opinion except by trying, and no regular way at all, it seems, to get
the reasons for their decisions.
