Re: Bug reports of DFSG violations are tagged 'lenny-ignore'?

OK guys, please. As a random Debian user may I suggest that you stop
investigating _who_ is violating DFSG and instead focus on _what_ things
are the cause of violating DFSG. I guess we know about the "what" part
already and that part exists in Sid too. So I think you should do
apt-get source linux-2.6
and go fix the issues you are concerned about - or help testing the
fixes provided by others (I might do some testing too). And perhaps the
users whose hardware won't be supported anymore appreciate some help on
how to work around their problem. (It looks like this includes me.)
Anyway, thanks for all the DDs and Debian community for this
mostly-pretty-good operating system.
